Answer:

#k = 1.13#

Explanation:

You first get the variable alone on one side. You move the #-5.91# over by adding #5.91# to both sides. #3k = 3.39#. Then divide both sides by #3. k = 1.13#.

Answer:

#k=1.13#

Explanation:

Solve:

#3k-5.91=-2.52#

Add #5.91# to both sides.

#3k=-5.91+5.91=-2.52+5.91#

Simplify.

#3k+0=3.39#

#3k=3.39#

Divide both sides by #3#.

#(color(red)cancel(color(black)(3))^1k)/color(red)cancel(color(black)(3))^1=(3.39)/3#

Simplify.

#k=1.13#
