Ok, so , I have the question:
5=8+5f. I'ev figured out that I have to add 8 to both sides of the equation,but now I'm stuck because I'm left with 3+5f=? And I can't figure out what should be on the other side of the equals sign. Please help! I'm a figure skater, not a mathlete!

Ms. Sue,
5=8+5f.
5 + 8 = 8 + 8 + 5f
3 = 5f
3/5 = f
If you substitute 3/5 for f in your original problem, you'll see that the answer is correct.
