algebra question

5 (n) - 9 = 26 (When multiplied by 5, n is a number which when 9 is subtracted is equal to 26.)

5n - 9 = 26 ( This is the equation you will solve.)

5n -9 +9 = 26 +9 (Add 9 to both sides to begin to isolate the variable.)

5n = 35 (This is what is left after the 9 is added to both sides.)

5n/5 = 35/5 (Divide both sides by 5 to remove he 5 from the n)

n = 7 (This is the result)

Check your answer-------- (5 x 7) -9 =26

35 -9 = 26
