# 5(n-1)+3=5008

## Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation
5(n-1)+3=5008

Solve for n
5(n - 1) + 3 = 5008

Simplify by removing parentheses
Simplify 5(n - 1):
Distribute the 5 to each term in (n-1)
5 * n = (5 * 1)n = 5n
5 * -1 = (5 * -1) = -5
Our Total expanded term is 5n-5

Our new term is
5n - 5 + 3 = 5008

Simplify by removing parentheses
Our new term is
5n - 5 + 3 = 5008

-5 + 3 = -2

5n - 2 = + 5008

## Group constants

Group our constants -2 and 5008.
5n - 2 + 2 = 5008 + 2

5n = 5010

## Divide each side of the equation by 5

 5n 5
 =
 5010 5

n = 1002

n = 1002
