Thank you very much, Jerry Cunningham begin by multiplying through by 5. you will get: 4x - 95 = 65 now try to get x on one side of the equal sign by itself. can you continue?

Thank you very much, Jerry Cunningham Well, one way to do it is to simply solve the equation for x: Now plug this value of x into (There's probably a fancier way to do this, but this method always works.) -Dan
Thanks for the great help! Jerry Cunningham
