(7n-1)/(8)=6

Okay,

I think I add 1 to both sides, so now I have..

(7n)/(8)=7

And then, to get n by itself I divide 7 into both sides, so now I have..

n/8=1

n=1 is what I get, but I'm not sure, could someone please check this for me?

No. Hang your head in shame :)

Multiply both sides by 8

7n-1=48

add one to each side, then divide each side by 7

No ,

first you multiply each side by 8 to get

7n - 1= 48

now add 1 to each side

7n = 49

divide both sides by 7

n = 7

check: in original

((7(7) -1 1)/6

= (49-1)/6

= 48/8

= 6

Check!!
