# How do you solve 16k=18+20-3k?

Feb 3, 2017

Solve for k and combine like terms

#### Explanation:

1. Add $3 k$ to $18 k$ and subtract it from the right
$16 k + 3 k = 18 + 20 - 3 k + 3 k$

2. Combine like terms (we know $18 + 20$ is 38, and $16 k + 3 k$ is $19 k$)
$19 k = 38$

3. Divide by 19 to get $k$ by itself
$k = 2$
