Alright, first you subtract the 7 on both sides.
So, -n + 7 - 7= 12 - 7

- anonymous

I did that

- anonymous

Confused what to divide by

- anonymous

and then, your final answer will be -n = 5.
You don't divide in this type of problem since it is only a single variable.

- anonymous

So n=s just 5

- anonymous

-n = 5.
So yeah, that's just it.

- anonymous

Here's another one m over 2 + 5 =s -3

- anonymous

First, add the 2 and the 5 so you get 7= s - 3.

- anonymous

And then you add the three on both sides, so 7 + 3 = s -3 + 3.
And then you get 10 = s

- anonymous

So add 5+2 an 3+2

- anonymous

No, you add the the 5 and the 2 to get 7
and then your new equation is 7= s - 3

- anonymous

So you do 5-5 since add isnopposite

- anonymous

What u add both sides with?

- anonymous

you add 3 to both sides, 7 + 3 = s - 3 + 3

- anonymous

You're trying to get the variable by itself.
So then you get 10 = s and that's it

- anonymous

So add th my subtract

- anonymous

I got 8 5+3 is 8

- anonymous

U not suppose to subtract instead of add cuz I thought you was suppose to do the opposite of the sign

- anonymous

I think you're a bit confused, which is okay.
2 + 5 = s - 3
7 = s - 3
add 3 to both sides:
7 + 3 = s - 3 + 3
10 = s

- anonymous

So I added 5+2 which is 7 what is the next addition problem

- anonymous

I'm suppose to marooned addition part of it out cuz it's suppose to equal 0 or be the same number than u just mark it out

- anonymous

I got 5+2 down just confused on what else I'm suppose to add 2 with

- anonymous

the 5 + 2 was part of the original equation
so you don't add it to anything else
you just simplify it
so it equals 7

- anonymous

Ok what r u suppose to divide it by?

- anonymous

If u didn't simply it what would you have to put down next to the 5+2 what other problem

- anonymous

There's no division required since it's just a single variable

- anonymous

So m=s 7

- anonymous

10 = s
You want to find the value of s

- anonymous

and s = 10

- anonymous

There isn't a s on here tho loll hers no other letter but m

- anonymous

2 + 5 =s -3
that was the original equation you asked.

- anonymous

No m over two means divide + 5=a-3

- anonymous

=-3 not a-3

- anonymous

I'm not sure what you're talking about anymore, I think my work here is done.

- anonymous

An I'm trying to find m

- anonymous

Okay thanks
