56 = n + 2/5n
Thanks :) but now I'm stuck on actually finding out what the integers are :(
What is your problem with solving the equation?
I just don't know how to go about it.
n + 2/5n = 56
but now what?
n + (2/5)n = 56
The simple way is to convert 2/5 to a decimal. You can divide 2 by 5 on your calculator and obtain 0.4, then
n + 0.4n = 56
1n + 0.4n = 56
1.4n = 56
divide both sides by 1.4
1.4n/1.4 = 56/1.4
n = ??
56 = 1n +(2/5)n
56 = (1+(2/5))n
56 = (7/5)n
n = (5/7)*56
THANK YOU SO MUCH! now it makes sense!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
