Can someone please explain how to do this problem: 7n-5=10n+13

• Pre- Algebra -

subtract 7n to the other side
AND subtract 13 to the other side
and also divide 3 to the other side,so

7n-5=10n+13
-5=10n-7n +13
-5-13=10n-7n
-18=3n
n=-6

• Pre- Algebra -

7n=10n+18
Then subtract 10n
-3n=18
Finally divide -3 on both sides
n=-6
