# How do you solve 3( f + 2) + 9= 13+ 5f ?

Apr 26, 2018

$f = 1$

#### Explanation:

We can start off by simplifying the left side, by distributing the $3$. We get:

$3 f + 6 + 9 = 13 + 5 f$

$\implies 3 f + 15 = 13 + 5 f$

We can subtract $13$ from both sides to get

$3 f + 2 = 5 f$

Next, subtract $3 f$ from both sides to get

$2 f = 2$

Lastly, dividing both sides by $2$ to get

$f = 1$

Hope this helps!
