# How do you solve 2n=900?

Nov 3, 2016

Divide by two.

#### Explanation:

The goal is to get $n$ by itself on one side of the equation and a value that it equals on the other. Right now, there are 2 $n$'s. To get rid of this, we divide by two. However, in order to keep the equations equal, we divide the other side as well.

$2 n = 900$

2n÷2=n, 900/2=450

$n = 450$
