# How do you solve k-25=30?

Sep 5, 2017

$k = 55$

#### Explanation:

Just collect like terms and you're good to go..

$k - 25 = 30$

$k = 30 + 25$

$k = 55$

or..

Using Distributive method..

$k - 25 = 30$

Since our major aim is to get the value of $k$..

Add $\textcolor{red}{25}$ to both sides..

$k - 25 + \textcolor{red}{25} = 30 + \textcolor{red}{25}$

$k \cancel{- 25 + 25} = 30 + 25$

$k + 0 = 30 + 25$

$k = 30 + 25$

$k = 55$
