r/5-3=2r/5+16

Please help me solve for r, I just can not seem to figure it out.

  • Math -

    I would multiply each term by 5 to get
    r - 15 = 2r + 90

    Now you have a very simple equation.
    Can you take it from there?

  • Math -

    I think so...I got r=105

  • Math -

    Watch your sign.
    Should have been r = -105

  • Math -

    Ok, thank you!

  • GABY !!! - Math -

    how silly of me 5x16 is 80, not 90

    the correct answer is -95
