Hello

10n = 5n +5

Shifting 5n

10n -5n = 5

5n =5

n=5/5 =1

In he old days we used to call this "transposition of terms", i.e. "transpose 5n from right side of equation to the left--by transposing/shifting and changing its sign".

10n = 5n + 5

Isolate n:

Subtract 5n from both sides and get

10n - 5n = 5n - 5n + 5

5n = 5

Divide both sides by 5 and get

5n/5 = 5/5 = 1

n = 1

That is your solution.
