Solve the following equation

5s+34.35-12s+16.94-5s=27.41

Solve for s

5s + 34.35 - 12s + 16.94 - 5s = 27.41

Group the s terms on the left:

(5 - 12 - 5)s = -12s

Group the constants on the left

34.35 + 16.94 = 51.29

Form modified equation

-12s + 51.29 = + 27.41

Group constants

Group our constants 51.29 and 27.41.
subtract 51.29 from both sides

-12s + 51.29 - 51.29 = 27.41 - 51.29

-12s = -23.88

Divide each side of the equation by -12

 -12s -12
 =
 -23.88 -12

s = 1.99

s = 1.99

s = 1.99
