 Question 56842This question is from textbook math 5th grade : were trying to figure out to work out this problem .this is how it is writen out.the directions say solve the equation. ( n divided by 7=8 ) and the other one is s/8=13 it`s a fraction.if someone could help me i would appreciate it. this is a worksheet my daughter is working for homework thank youThis question is from textbook math 5th grade Found 3 solutions by mszlmb, checkley71, ankor@dixie-net.com:Answer by mszlmb(115)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! and Don't worry, these are relatively easy; we have to remember that what we do to one side we must do to the other. In the first equation, we want N by itself (because whatever's on the other side of the equal sign will be the answer for n) Notice that if we multiply both sides by 7, the equation simplifies to . The statement is still true; and it can be tried with any numbers a, b and x such a=b. a*x*b*x. For example, 2+3 is a, and 5 is b. a=b because 2+3=5. Now let's multiply by 5. 5(2+3)=5(5): simplify to 5(5)=5(5) or 25=25; if we keep doing what we do to one side to the other also, we'll be fine. simplifies to simplifies to , and n (56) is the answer. Same with the second equation: so so . Hope this helped, email or im for questions. Answer by checkley71(8403)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!N/7=8 N=8*7 N=56 PROOF 56/7=8 8=8 S/8=13 S=13*8 S=104 PROOF 104/8=13 13=13 Answer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15650)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! n divided by 7=8 ) and the other one is s/8=13 : n/7 = 8 : Get rid of the denominator by multiplying the equation by 7. 7/7 = 1 of course 7(n/7) = 7(8) 1(n) = 56 n = 56 : Substitute 56 for n and you can see that 56/7 =8 : s/8 = 13 Do the same with this; mult eq by 8: 1s = 8*13 s = 104 : 104/8 = 13
