# How do you solve 1.4f + 1.1 = 8.3 - f?

Jul 29, 2016

Isolate $f$ on one side of the equation.

#### Explanation:

To do this, let's subtract 1.1 from each side. This is what we get afterwards:

$1.4 f = 7.2 - f$

Next, let's add $f$ to each side. This gives us $2.4 f = 7.2$.

Finally, let's divide each side by 2.4. This gives us $f = 3$.
