Distribute the right side
i forgot how to solve these type of problems :/
Well you know how to distribute right?
i know that i have to add or subtract to both sides until its equal but i don't know what to add/subtract @Luigi0210
Well you need to DISTRIBUTE first..
3n - 5 = -8(6 + 5n) 3n-5= -48 - 40n
Like that ^ Thanks you @hello1213
but i don't understand how
3n-5= -8(6) + -8(5n)
okay.. what do i do after that?
Now you start moving things
combine like terms
what does that mean again? ugh sorry i totally forgot everything during summer break
get the n numbers together on one side... the other numbers on the other side.
the mission is to isolate n on one side... lets do the right side as the n numbers... what do you get?
actually get the n numbers on the left side it is easier.
i'm confused! can you show me how?
i understand better by seeing how it's done rather than reading
3n-5= -8(6) + -8(5n) 3n-5= -8(6) + -8(5n) <<< multiply 3n-5= -48 + (-40n) now isolate n numbers on left side 3n-5 + 40n= -48 - 40 n + 40n 3n-5+5+40n= -48 + 5 43n = -43
Now what is the answer?
ohhh i think i get it now
that is not the answer
@hello1213 try to avoid doing all of the asker's work for them
nvm i don't get it -_-
-43/43 is what
43n = -43 to isolate n divide BOTH sides by 43 get it?
ohh yeahh! thanks :)
