First, divide 9 by 3.

$${\frac{{\mathtt{9}}}{{\mathtt{3}}}} = {\mathtt{3}}$$

Now, subtract 3 from 8

$${\mathtt{8}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{3}} = {\mathtt{5}}$$

So, $${\mathtt{v}} = {\mathtt{5}}$$.

Hope it helps!

Thanks, DS....you answered exactly what was asked!!!  We would perform the division first and then the subtraction.....

As an alternative, the questioner might have meant this:

(v + 9) / 3  = 8    .......mutiply both sides by 3

v + 9 =  24          ........subtract 9 from both sides

v = 15

Now, they have two answers to both "forms" of the problem........

Thanks, Chris!! I just answer old questions that are unanswered. I saw that you and Melody use that type of method, and that's why I tried to use that method. But, thanks, CPhill!!!!!!!!!!!!
