# How do you solve -139+ 60k = 5( 12k + 5)?

May 9, 2018

No solutions for $k$.

#### Explanation:

As per the question, we have

$- 139 + 60 k = 5 \left(12 k + 5\right)$

$\therefore - 139 + 60 k = 60 k + 25$

$\therefore 60 k - 60 k = 25 + 139$

$\therefore 0 = 164$

But, $0 \ne 164$

$\therefore$ This equation has no solution as the sides are not equal.
