5h-7=2(h+1)
I got, 5h-7=2h+1
and then I added -7 plus 1, and got -6
So 5h-6=2h?
Could someone explain what I did wrong and help me correct it?

  • Algebra, ( Check please) -

    5h-7=2(h+1)
    5h - 7 = 2h + 2

    You forgot to multiply 2 * 1.

    3h = 9
    h = ?

  • Algebra, ( Check please) -

    h=3

    Right.
