n-3/8=1/8

Step 1: add 3/8s to both sides (on the left side, this will cancel out the -3/8 and on the right side you add them together)

n-3/8+3/*=1/8+3/8

n-3/8+3/8=1/8+3/8

n=1/8+3/8

n=4/8 

Step 2: Simplify 4/8 because it is not in its lowest terms (meaning both numbers can still be divided by the same number.

n=4/8 (both of these numbers have 4 as a common factor so they can both be divided by 4.  Remember what you do to the denominator you must also do to the numerator).

n=1/2

(4/4=1 and 8/4=2)

Final Answer

n=1/2

answer: n=1/2

explanation:

step 1: add 3/8 and 1/8
