Combine the same terms. 14n - 7n= 7n. The equation becomes 7n+2=38. Subtract 2 from each side. 7n+2-2=38-2. The equation becomes 7n=36. Divide each side by 7 to get n on its own. 7n/7 = 36 Finally, n=5 & 1/7 or 5.142857 Best of luck!

Write the word problem as a math equation… horrible I know: A + B + C = 22 Equation 1. (A + B + C + D)/4 = 8 Equation 2. Now substitute in Equation 1 into Equation 2. (A + B + C = 22) (22 + D)/4 = 8 Now multiply both sides of the equation by the...

p – 5 – 13p = 150 – 11 (answer)

p – 5 – 13p = 150 – 11 Step 1: Gather the same terms all together, i.e. all the p's and all the numbers. one p less 13p = the negative of 13p less 1p (different explanation if this helps more in the future) Now we have - 12p -5 = 139 or (150 - 11) Now the numbers...
