Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation


Solve for w

12w + 440 = 18w + 260

Group variables

Group our variables 12w and 18w
subtract 18w from both sides

12w + 440 - 18w = 18w + 260 - 18w

Cancel 18w on the right side:

-6w + 440 = 260

Group constants

Group our constants 440 and 260.
subtract 440 from both sides

-6w + 440 - 440 = 260 - 440

Cancel 440 on the left side:

-6w = -180

Divide each side of the equation by -6


w = 30

Final Answer

w = 30

What is the Answer?
w = 30
