Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2multiply both sides by (u1) \[\frac{ u1 }{u 1 } = 5 \times (u1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2on the left hand side: numerator = denominator, so it simplifies to \[1= 5 \times (u1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2yep, you are right...but theres more to do, you have to solve for 'u'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay so U = 1 because \[5u \div 5 =u \] and then you have to do it to the other side so \[5\div5=1\] and i guess that makes it \[u=1\] ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2divide both sides by (5) to get \[\frac{ 1 }{ 5 } = \frac{ 5 }{ 5 } \times (u1)\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2this again simplifies to \[\frac{ 1 }{ 5 } = u1\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2okay then now add 1 to both sides \[\frac{ 1 }{ 5 } +1 = u1+1\]
