# How do you solve \frac { r - 10} { 19} = 26?

Jun 5, 2018

$r = 504$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{r - 10}{19} = 26$

To solve for the variable $r$, we have to make it by itself. To do so, first multiply both sides by $\textcolor{b l u e}{19}$:

$\frac{r - 10}{19} \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot \quad 19} = 26 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot \quad 19}$

$r - 10 = 494$

Now add $\textcolor{b l u e}{10}$ to both sides:
$r - 10 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 10} = 494 \quad \textcolor{b l u e}{+ \quad 10}$

Therefore,
$r = 504$

Hope this helps!
