r/53=2r/5+16
Please help me solve for r, I just can not seem to figure it out.

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? 
I think so...I got r=105

Watch your sign.
Should have been r = 105 
Ok, thank you!

how silly of me 5x16 is 80, not 90
the correct answer is 95
