The question:

by Jessica

b=b/42


The answer:

b = b/42


to remove the fraction on the right side of the equation, multiply each side of the equation by 42

b * 42 = (b/42) * 42

b * 42 = b * (42/42)

b * 42 = b * (1)

b * 42 = b

42b = b


To remove the “b” on the right side of the equation, subtract “b” from each side of the equation

42b - b = b – b

42b - b = 0

41b = 0


To remove the “41” from the left side of the equation, divide each side of the equation by 41

41b/41 = 0/41

41b/41 = 0

b*(41/41) = 0

b*(1) = 0

b = 0


the final answer is: b = 0



Thanks for writing.
