How would I solve:
1/3(D+3)=5
I know you need to find the recipicile,
but I have no idea how to solve this.

• Algebra -

1/3(D+3)=5

1/3D + 1 = 5
1/3D = 4
D = 4/(1/3)
D = 4 * (3/1)
D = 12

• Algebra -

Where did the four come from?

• Algebra -

To get the knowns on one side of the equation, I subtracted 1 from both sides.
