How do I solve this?
Five times a number is divided by 7 more than that number. If the result is 2, then what was the original number?
Let the number = N
(5N) / [N + 7] = 2, solve for N
N = 14 / 3
Set the number to be n.
5 times n over 7 more than n is 2.
Multiply by \(7+n\):
This answer is the same as Guest's, but with more steps.
