HI!!

2. wintersuntime

hi

3. misty1212

add 7, then divide by 5

4. wintersuntime

on both sides

5. anonymous

yes of course on both sides

6. anonymous

you add the 7 to get rid of the $$-7$$ on the left first

7. wintersuntime

so if i add both of them i get 14

8. anonymous

then you will have $$5q$$ on the left hand side to get $$q$$ by itself you divide by 5

@satellite73 Can You please help me with a question im begging

$5q-7=\frac{2}{3}\\ 5q=\frac{2}{3}+7$ there is no 14 in it

5Q - 7 = 2/3 Drag 7 on other side 5q = 2/3 + 7 5q = (2+21)/7 5q = 23/7 Now drag 5 and multiply it with 7 q = 23/35 So you get Q = 0.657

Isn't the answer 23/15

Oops yeah its 23/15 my bad

Then you will get 1.533
