-14+5u=-9u

-14+5u=-9u

-5u -5u

-14=-14u

-14/-14=-14u/-14

u=1

1: Simplify the problem by moving all similar figures together (normal numbers like 1 or -1 go to their side, numbers with letters attached go to a different side.)

2: Divide to get rid of the number attached to the letter. REMEMBER! Always do the same thing to both sides.

3: The answer with be _= number, or number=_ (i.e. 10=a or b=-6)
