## anonymous one year ago Solve for K. 2/7(K+5/8)=16/7

HeY!

2. anonymous

hey do you know the answer? I've been stuck for a while.

3. anonymous

Is the question$\frac{ 2 }{ 7 }\left( k+\frac{ 5 }{ 8 } \right) = \frac{ 16 }{ 7 }$

4. anonymous

Yes

5. anonymous

OK. The first thing I would do is multiply both sides by 7. This will get rid of the 7ths fractions. Can you do that?

6. anonymous

Ya

7. anonymous

What do you get?

8. anonymous

2(k+5/8)=16

9. anonymous

Very good. Now divide both sides by 2 to get rid of the 2 on the left hand side. What do you get?

10. anonymous

(k+5/8)=8

11. anonymous

Excellent. You're good at this. Now, solving for k is straight forward. Subtract 5/8 from both sides. What do you get?

Thankyou so much for the help. I finished the rest of the question. Thankyou
