#### Explanation:

Given

**Step 1** : Using distributive property of make the equation simpler

#6n +48 = 7n -42 + 5#

**Step 2** : Combine like terms

#6n +48 = 7n - 37#

**Step 3** Let's isolate the variable, using the additive property like so

#6n + 48 color(red)(-6n) = 7n - 37 color(red)(-6n)#

#48 = n -37#

#48 color(blue)(+37) = n -37 color(blue)(+37)#

#85 = n#
