Question 26724: Please help me solve this equation: 2=n-(2n+3). I need to find the value of n. The book has the answer in the back for reference but I keep coming up with the wrong answer. This is the solution I got:
You can put this solution on YOUR website! 2=n-(2n+3)=
2=n-2n-3(the negative in front of parenthesis, changes all signs)
then add 3 to both sides
divide bothe sides by the negative
If you replace the n with a negative 5 you wll see that this works!!
