Add 3/8 on both sides
n - 3/8 + 3/8 = 1/8 +3/8
Therefore,
n = 1/8 + 3/8 = (3+1)/8 = 4/8 = 1/2
We can multiply all the terms on bot sides by 8. Then the equation becomes 8n-3=1.
We add 3 on each side, 8n-3+3=1+3
8n=4
Now we divide each side by 8
n=4/8=1/2
n-3/8=1/8 Equation
+3/8=+3/8 Add 3/8 to both sides to eliminate -3/8 on the left side.
n=1/8+3/8 Fraction addition with a common denominator.
n=4/8=1/2 Final fraction answer in lowest terms since the GCF between the numerator and denominator is 4.
n - 3/8 = 1/8
+ 3/8 + 3/8
______________
n + 0 = 1/8 + 3/8
n = 4/8 = 1/2
Other way to do it it move -3/8 to the other side of the equation:
n - 3/8 = 1/8
When you move a term to the other side of the equation, the sign must change( if it is negative to positive; if it is positive to negative)
n = 1/8 + 3/8
Then, n= 4/8 = 1/2
