Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0my mistake here's the correction 5n + 12 + n = 3 6n = 15 n = 5/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i need to know the steps so i can do it on my own you guys are just throwing answers or these problems of how you think it should be solved. its just confusing to me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i know, right! if you multiply each term of that equation by 3, what u get ? 3* (1/3)* (5n+12) =...? 3* (1/3)* n =...? 3*3 =.... ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1*last line should be 1*3=...?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so i subtract 5 from twelve here?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1dw:1362988334714:dw so, you are left with simple linear equation : 5n+12+n = 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1you can't subtract 5 from 12...there is 'n' attached to 5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1combine like terms, 5n+n = 6n

LonelyandForgotten

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh, so you divide that? i thought you have to subtract because it is opposite of addition :P

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now , subtract 12 from both sides, (because subtraction is opposite of addition) so, 6n +1212 = 312 6n = 15 now just divide by 6

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1because division is opposite of multiplication, ...yes, thats correct :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmm thanks for the help so far! :) so how do you make that a fraction?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.16n = 15 n = 15/6 = 3*5 /(3*2) 3 cancels out. n = 5/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this will take me a while to learn but i really dont want to waste your time..thank you for this, i will look over it because its got all the help i need :) so thanks :D
