Start with the parentheses jx60 is the same as writing 60j 3x6=18 ... So far, 3x66 = 60j + 18 .. Solve 3x66 = 198 Now, 198 = 60j + 18 .. Isolate the variable, j. Keep it balanced, by doing the same action to both sides. 198 - 18 = 60j + 18 - 18 Subtract 180 = 60j Divide by 60 to further isolate the variable, j. Remember to keep it balanced. 180/60 = 60j/60 180/60 = j 180/60 = 3 = j ... j=3 .........................
