I am a parent of a 10 year old, 5th grader and my hubby and I just can't figure these out to help her. Anyone?? Thanks in advance.

27 = 8k divide k = ??

5a - 3a = 18 a = ??

12r - 4r = 48 r = ??

g = 7(10-3) g = ??

These are finding the unknown number in each equation.

Thanks so much

27 = 8k

Divide both sides of the equation by 8.

27/8 = k

3.375 = k

______________________________________

5a - 3a = 18

2a = 18

a = 9

Can you do the rest yourself? We'll be glad to check your answers.
