Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So now we want to get the 'n' by itself right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well that is one way but there is a faster/ easier way to doing this. Try thinking of the problem like this: \[1np\] We are able to divide the 1 to remove the negative on the 'np' side.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[np > 140\] Now because we divide by a negative, making us flip the sign. So the answer, if you were looking just for 'n', would be \[n > \frac{ 140 }{ p }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Hmmm... I remember this type of equation specifically, however, I do not remember the way in which you were to solve it. I will try my best though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0But I think the answer would either be d = 6 or d = 3
