Ex 4.2, 3 Give the steps you will use to separate the variable and then solve the equation: (a) 3n โ 2 = 46 3n โ 2 = 46 Adding 2 to both sides 3n โ 2 + 2 = 46 + 2 3n = 48 Dividing 3 both sides 3๐/3 = 48/3 n = 16 Ex 4.2, 3 Give the steps you will use to separate the variable and then solve the equation: (b) 5m + 7 = 175m + 7 = 17 Subtracting 7 from both sides, 5m + 7 โ 7 = 17 โ 7 5m = 10 Dividing 5 both sides 5๐/5 = 10/5 m = 2 Ex 4.2, 3 Give the steps you will use to separate the variable and then solve the equation: (c) 20๐/3 = 4020๐/3 = 40 Multiplying 3 both sides 20๐/3 ร 3 = 40 ร 3 20p = 120 Dividing 20 both sides 20๐/20 = 120/20 p = 6 Ex 4.2, 3 Give the steps you will use to separate the variable and then solve the equation: (d) 3๐/10 = 63๐/10 = 6 Multiplying 10 both sides 3๐/10 ร 10 = 6 ร 10 3p = 60 Dividing 3 both sides 3๐/3 = 60/3 p = 20
