# How do you solve 5v - 7+ 4= 7?

May 2, 2018

$v = 2$

#### Explanation:

First, combine $- 7 + 4$:
$5 v - 3 = 7$

Now we want to find the variable $v$, so we need to move everything else to the other side of the equation.

First, add $\textcolor{b l u e}{3}$ to both sides of the equation:
$5 v - 3 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 3} = 7 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 3}$

$5 v = 10$

Now divide both sides by $\textcolor{b l u e}{5}$:
$\frac{5 v}{\textcolor{b l u e}{5}} = \frac{10}{\textcolor{b l u e}{5}}$

$v = 2$
