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

    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?

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

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