Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You'll need to combine like terms. Anything attached to the variable of 'r' is one type of term, and everything without an 'r' is another. However, to start, let's get the r off of the right side. Subtraction is the inverse of addition, so we subtract the single r from both sides New equation: 0.25r0.125r+0.5rr=0.5 Now we can combine. We take the coefficients and add them 0.250.125+0.51=3.75 So we have a coefficient of 3.75 New equation: 3.75r=0.5 But now we need to isolate r, or get it by itself on the left side. Division is the inverse of multiplication, so we shall divide both sides by 3.75 New equation: (In fraction form) r=(2/15) And there you go!
