Hi! thanks for answering my question but how do you get -3 for the answer?

Oct 9th, 2015

Doesnt 9-5 equal 4?

Oct 9th, 2015

We have 9x-8x at one side and -3 at the other side. 9x-8x=x

Oh so what ever is left over is the answer?

Oct 9th, 2015

the answer is x=-3

5n = 7+4n

5n-4n=7

n=7

5n-4n doesnt equal 7 ? How did you get 7? Can you explain this to me?

Oct 12th, 2015

5n-4n=7

n(5-4)=7

1n=7
