# How do you solve 8.3+ g= \frac { 1} { 4}?

Sep 22, 2017

$g = - 8.05$

#### Explanation:

$8.3 + g = \frac{1}{4}$
Equation ^

First we subtract $8.3$ from both sides.

$8.3 + g \textcolor{b l u e}{-} \textcolor{b l u e}{8.3} = \frac{1}{4} \textcolor{b l u e}{-} \textcolor{b l u e}{8.3}$

$8.3 + g - 8.3 = g$ and $\frac{1}{4} = 0.25$

$0.25 - 8.3 = - 8.05$ and therefore $g = - 8.05$.
