This is as far as I got. - Thank-you and I hope you can help meAnswer by nihon64(5)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!4c-7=2c-1 Since 2c contains the variable to solve for, move it to the left-hand side of the equation by subtracting 2c from both sides. 4c-7-2c=-1 Since 4c and -2c are like terms, add -2c to 4c to get 2c. 2c-7=-1 Since -7 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the equation by adding 7 to both sides. 2c=7-1 Subtract 1 from 7 to get 6. 2c=6 Divide each term in the equation by 2. (2c)/(2)=(6)/(2) Simplify the left-hand side of the equation by canceling the common terms. c=(6)/(2) Simplify the right-hand side of the equation by simplifying each term. c=3 Hope that helps!
