Answer:

To solve for #u#, isolate #u# on one side of the equation.

Explanation:

First, let's use the distributive property to simplify the equation:

#2u+6v=w-5u#

Next, let's add 5u to each side:

#7u+6v=w#

Next, let's subtract 6v from each side:

#7u=w-6v#

Finally, divide each side by 7 to get our answer:

#u=(w-6v)/7#
