- No one wants to, hehehe
- 5a+17=57
- Anyone want to solve this equation? Come on anyone?
- I guess someone wants to
- SHUSH!!!
- 5a+17=57
- I will do it
- Ok great, don't forget to tell the steps while you work
- 5a+17=57 -17 -17
- So the first thing that you do is subtract 17 from both sides
- 5a+17=57 -17 -17 5a=40
- And so the +17 is cancelled, then you subtract 57-17 which is 40
- 5a+17=57 -17 -17 5a=40 5 5a=8
- Then you want to divide 5a by 5 and 40 by 5 and that gives you a=8 which is the answer.
- 5a+17=57 -17 -17 5a=40 5 5a=8
- Very good, thank you.
