# How do you solve #6n=4n+3#?

##### 2 Answers

n = 1.5

#### Explanation:

Subtract 4n from both sides of the equation, so you are left with

2n = 3 now divide both sides of the equation by 2 and you obtain

n = 3/2 (or 1.5)

In this type of problem the overall strategy is to isolate the Unknown (n in this case) on one side of the equation. The tactic is to perform the same operations on both sides of the equation ( subtracting 4n, dividing by 2) so as to maintain the equality.

With practise you will start to use the shortcuts and become much faster at solving this type of question.

#### Explanation:

The trick is to manipulate the equation so that you end up with just one

The shortcuts people show you are just methods of jumping steps of the first principle method.
