# 3. Give the steps you will use to separate the variable and then solve the equation:(a) 3n – 2 = 46(b) 5m + 7 = 17(c) 20p / 3 = 40 (d) 3p/10 = 6

(a)   We have  3n – 2 = 46.

Transposing - 2 to the RHS, we have :

or

(b) We have      5m + 7 = 17

Transposing 7 to the RHS, we have :

or

(c) We have   20p / 3 = 40

Multiply both sides by   :

or

(d)    We have   3p/10 = 6

Multiply both sides by   :

or
