Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation


Solve for w

1200 - 40w = 120 + 50w

Group variables

Group our variables -40w and 50w
subtract 50w from both sides

-40w + 1200 - 50w = 50w + 120 - 50w

Cancel 50w on the right side:

-90w + 1200 = 120

Group constants

Group our constants 1200 and 120.
subtract 1200 from both sides

-90w + 1200 - 1200 = 120 - 1200

Cancel 1200 on the left side:

-90w = -1080

Divide each side of the equation by -90


w = 12

Final Answer

w = 12

What is the Answer?
w = 12
