Claire from Worcester asked the following question:
Can you help me solve this: 9k + 8 = 45
Firstly, this is an equation with one unknown quantity (k) and the rest are just numbers. So let's work on those numbers first.
9k + 8 = 45
If we subtract 8 from both sides, it will be a little tidier:
9k + 8 - 8 = 45 - 8
Now we can simply divide both sides by 9 to end up with k:
k = 37 ÷ 9 = 4.11 (to 2 dp)
