Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation


Solve for c

2c + 2 + 2c + c = 42

Group the c terms on the left:

(2 + 2 + 1)c = 5c

Form modified equation

5c + 2 = + 42

Group constants

Group our constants 2 and 42.
subtract 2 from both sides

5c + 2 - 2 = 42 - 2

Cancel 2 on the left side:

5c = 40

Divide each side of the equation by 5


c = 8

Final Answer

c = 8

What is the Answer?
c = 8
