5+14=6b85b  This is a linear equation. Simplify each side. That is, 5+14= ? and then 6b  8  5b = ??

As directrix said, linear. Solve for each side then solve for b. So 5+14=9 6b85b=1b8 So problem becomes 9=1b8 Then you solve for b by adding 8 to both sides: 9+8=17 on one side 1b8+8 =1b on the other side Now it's 17=1b so you divide by 1 on each side. 17/1=1b/1 So answer as requested is b=17

5+14=6b85b Since b is on the righthand side of the equation, switch the sides so it is on the lefthand side of the equation. 6b85b=5+14 Since 6b and 5b are like terms, add 5b to 6b to get b. b8=5+14 Add 14 to 5 to get 9. b8=9 Since 8 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the righthand side of the equation by adding 8 to both sides. b=8+9 Add 9 to 8 to get 17. b=17
