# How do you solve 98=b+34?

Jun 11, 2018

$b = 64$

#### Explanation:

$98 = b + 34$

To solve for the variable $b$, we have to make it by itself. To do so, subtract $\textcolor{b l u e}{34}$ from both sides of the equation:
98 quadcolor(blue)(-quad34) = b + 34 quadcolor(blue)(-quad34_

$64 = b$

Therefore, $b = 64$.

Hope this helps!
