# How do you solve and check your solutions to #48=8c#?

##### 2 Answers

Divide both sides by 8 to get that

Then, plug in

#### Explanation:

To solve the equation, you need to get

How do we do that? Well, since both sides of the equation are equal, we can divide both sides of the equation by

#color(white)"X...."48 = 8c#

#48 div 8 = 8c div 8#

#color(white)"X.-.-."6 = c#

This tells us that

Now, we need to check our solution. We do this by "plugging in" 6 for

#48 =^? 8c#

#48 =^? 8times6#

#48 =^color(limegreen)(sqrt()) 48#

So our solution is correct!

#### Explanation:

The idea is to isolate c if you will. In order to do that, we need to dive both sides of the equation by 8.

The 8 cancels out on the right side, leaving us with:

To check your answer, simply take the value of c that you found and plug it back into the original equation.

Since the equation above is correct, our answer is correct.
