# How do you solve 4k-27=15k-18?

Apr 12, 2018

$k = - \frac{9}{11}$

#### Explanation:

$4 k - 27 = 15 k - 18$

$4 k - 15 k = - 18 + 27$

$- 11 k = 9$

$k = - \frac{9}{11}$

First, bring all like terms onto the same side, so bring the $x$ terms onto the left and the numbers by themselves onto the right. Then simplify. Then you need to get $k$ on its own on the left so you divide both sides by $- 11$.

Therefore,

$k = - \frac{9}{11}$
