to eliminate the fraction, you can multiply by 3 on both sides.

@Best_Mathematician that isn't exatly the answer i was looking for...

LonelyandForgottenBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
so 5 and 12?
 one year ago

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

LonelyandForgottenBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
do you have to simplify that?

n=1.5 or 3/2 is incorrect.

LonelyandForgottenBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
but theres no such thing as 1.5 here :(

do you want to solve it on your own, or just want an answer ?

yeahh thats what i was thinking, it cant be right :/

i 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

i 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 =.... ?

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

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
thats right side, what about left side of = ?

sorry i am just terrible at math

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
3* (1/3)* (5n+12) =5n+12 3* (1/3)* n =n got this ?

haha no problem! :D

so i subtract 5 from twelve here?
 one year ago

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

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

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
combine like terms, 5n+n = 6n
 one year ago

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

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

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

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

hartnnBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
6n = 15 n = 15/6 = 3*5 /(3*2) 3 cancels out. n = 5/2
 one year ago

LonelyandForgottenBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
this 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
