How do you solve this
5n - 12 = 53
The answer to the equation in this case is n=8.2.To solve for 5n-12=53, you need to group the like terms together. It will then be 5n=53-12, which will be 5n=41 and you divide both sides by 5.
n=13 5n-12=53 then add both sides so 5n=65 then divide each by 5. and 65/5 is 13.
n=8.2. solve=5n-12=53 5n+41 divide by 5 both sides I DIDNT COPY BABY.RUTH:
