Uhhhh... well i need help with this algebra but i kinda need it explained as well...meaning if you can help please explain what you did because i have no idea how to do this kind of problem

r+3
---- = 1
12

i need to know what r is

12

  • algebra - ,

    r+3
    ---- = 1
    12

    Multiply both sides by 12.

    r + 3 = 12

    Subtract 3 from both sides.

    r = 9
    __________________________

    You can prove it by substituting 9 for r in the original equation.

    12/12 = 1
