# How do you solve for k in 2(j+k)=m?

Feb 27, 2016

 color(blue)(k =(m - 2 j)/2

#### Explanation:

$2 \left(j + k\right) = m$

$2 \times \left(j\right) + 2 \times \textcolor{b l u e}{\left(k\right)} = m$

Note: The term containing $k$ needs to be isolated.

$2 j + \textcolor{b l u e}{2 k} = m$

$\textcolor{b l u e}{2 k} = m - 2 j$

 color(blue)(k =(m - 2 j)/2
