Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step 2: Flip the Equation:\[312=13\times k~becomes~13\times k=312\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right! So, we know what 13 times k is, how could you find k by itself? :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Step 3: Divide both sides by 13:\[\frac{ 13\times k }{ 13 } = \frac{ 312 }{ 13 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hey, look! There's a great idea right there. :) Just divide both sides by 13. This leaves us with k.
