How do you solve #0.75s + 5= 0.50s + 9#? Algebra Linear Equations Two-Step Equations and Properties of Equality 1 Answer Harsha · Stefan V. Apr 5, 2018 #s=16# Explanation: First, take #0.75s# and #0.50s# as #75/100s# and #50/100s#. Then it becomes #(75/100s)+5=(50/100s)+9# #(75s+500)/100=(50s+900)/100# The #100# on both sides will get cancelled #75s+500=50s+900# #75s-50s=900-500# #25s=400# #s=400/25# #s=16# Answer link Related questions How do you solve two step equations?
