# How do you solve and check your solution given a-2.7=3.2?

Feb 22, 2018

$a = 5.9$

#### Explanation:

To solve this equation, simply add ($+$) $2.7$ from each side.

$- 2.7 + 2.7 = 0$ on the left side...
$3.2 + 2.7 = 5.9$ on the right side...

Hence the answer is $a = 5.9$. To check we simply enter this value in on the left side:

$5.9 - 2.7 = 3.2$? Yes!

Therefore the equation checks out and everything is satisfied.

Answer: $a = 5.9$
