Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You have to cancel out the values on one side. To remove the 5 you add 5 to both sides which will not change the value of the equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1since 15k = 15 x k you will divide 27/15 and 15 x k / 15 that cancels out 15 on the right side leaving you with 27/15 = k divide that to get your answer
