To start with, you're not supposed to multiplying anything. M= 176-0.8A. M+ 0.8A=176. We know what m is, so the equation becomes 125 + 0.8A = 176. We rearrange the equation to be 0.8A= 176-125. Now to get A by itself, we divide both sides by 0.8 so then A= (176-125)/0.8

**Math**

So if m= max heart rate, which you know is 125. Then write the equation as. 125=176-0.8A. Now solve for A to get the persons age. You will need to round to get the answer.
