First, let's not pay attention to the r/5 part, let's replace it with a question mark So ? - 6 = -1

is it 5?
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Correct So the ? is 5 and if we look at the question the ? was also replaced by the r/5, which means they are the same thing 5 = R --- 5 Would you have an idea on how to solve this?

no im still confused
FortyTheRapper

So what we first did was found a way for the ? to mean two things We had r - - 6 = -1, so we made the r/5 a question mark to make it one thing 5 Then we decided to make the ? and did ? - 6 = -1 We found 5 was the answer to our other thing, so we set those equal R - = 5, reading what divided by 5 gives you 5 5 That make sense so far?

yus

So now we need to find ? divided by 5 gives you 5 So 5/5 = 1 and 10/5 = 2, right? You see that pattern of counting by 5's

kinda
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Let's set it up like this We know that anything over 1 is just that number, so 5 is also 5/1 5 R - = -- 1 5 Do you know how to solve proportions by cross multiplying and dividing?

kinda so 5*5 and 1*?
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Yes, close! We have the ? as R, so it would be 5*5 and 1*R, but if we multiply a number by one, it's just that number, right? Same with variables/letters So we'd have 5*5 = 1R or 5*5 = R
gigi1103
  • gigi1103
oh ok
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
What would you get with R if you did, 5*5 = R
gigi1103
  • gigi1103
25?
FortyTheRapper
  • FortyTheRapper
Correct! so R = 25
