I need help solving an equation
Solve the following equation for a. Please show all of your work.
C = 1/6 (10b7a)

C = 1/6 (10b7a)
C = (1/6*10b)  (1/6*7a)
C = 5/3 b  7/6 a
+7/6 a +7/6 a
C + 7/6 a = 5/3 b
C C
7/6 a = 5/3 b + C

oops not done.
(7/6 a) / 7/6 = (5/3 b + C)/ 7/6
a = (5/3 b + C)*(6/7)
a = 10/7 b + 6/7 C

multiply both sides by 6
6C = 10b  7a
7a = 10b  6C
a = (10/7)b  (6/7)C
