# Solve? f-5/2=9

Feb 28, 2017

Isolate the variable by adding $\frac{5}{2}$ to both sides and simplifying.

#### Explanation:

1. $f - \frac{5}{2} = 9$ (rewrite the equation)

2. $f = 9 + \frac{5}{2}$ (add $\frac{5}{2}$ to both sides to isolate the variable)

3. $f = \frac{18}{2} + \frac{5}{2}$ (Find a like denominator to add)

4. $f = \frac{23}{2}$ (Final answer)
