# How do you solve 8/(n+4)=6/2?

Jul 18, 2016

$n = - \frac{4}{3}$.

#### Explanation:

Given eqn, $\frac{8}{n + 4} = \frac{6}{2} \Rightarrow \frac{8}{n + 4} = 3$

Now, multiply on both side by $\left(n + 4\right)$ to get,

$8 = 3 \left(n + 4\right) \Rightarrow 8 = 3 n + 12$

Adding $- 12$ on both side, we get, $8 - 12 = 3 n$

$\therefore - 4 = 3 n$

Finally, multiply the eqn. by $\frac{1}{3}$, to find the soln. $n = - \frac{4}{3}$.
