(1) Multiply out the parentheses.

3u - 16 = 5u - 30

(2) Combine "u" terms on one side and constants on the other

(3) There should be a "2 u" on one side of the equation you end up with in (2).

(4) Divide both sides of your equation by 2

You need to attempt these questions yourself if you expect to learn anything.

What exactly is "help properly"?

He/she explained how to do this problem.

Do you expect the problem to be done for you?

"You need to attempt these questions yourself if you expect to learn anything."

This is a true statement.
