10z-5+3z=8-z

Jan 11th, 2015

10z - 5 + 3z = 8 - z

13z - 5 = 8 - z       (Combine like terms on each side)

14z - 5 = 8              (Add z to both sides)

14z = 13                  (Add 5 to both sides)

z = 13/14                (Divide both sides by 14)

ANSWER: z = 13/14 or z = 0.9286 (equivalent)
