# How do you solve 2v - 6= 10?

May 27, 2018

$v = 8$

#### Explanation:

Start by adding $6$ to both sides to isolate the variable $v$, that is trying to be found.

$2 v \cancel{- 6} = 10$
color(white)"xx"cancel(color(red)(+6 color(white)"xx"color(red)(+6

$2 v =$ $\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{xxx}} 16$

Now divide both sides by $2$:

$2 v = 16$

$\frac{\cancel{2} v}{\cancel{\textcolor{red}{2}}} = \frac{16}{\textcolor{red}{2}}$

$v = \frac{16}{2}$

$v = 8$
