# How do you solve u/5+6=2?

$u = - 20$

#### Explanation:

To solve this, let's first get the term with $u$ on one side and the terms without $u$ on the other by subtracting 6 from both sides:

$\frac{u}{5} + 6 = 2$

$\frac{u}{5} + 6 - 6 = 2 - 6$

$\frac{u}{5} = - 4$

Now we can multiply both sides by 5:

$\frac{u}{\cancel{5}} \cancel{5} = - 4 \left(5\right)$

$u = - 20$
