Enter Equation or Inequality
  

Solve the following equation

8b+1500=12b

Solve for b

8b + 1500 = 12b

Group variables

Group our variables 8b and 12b
subtract 12b from both sides

8b + 1500 - 12b = 12b - 12b

Cancel 12b on the right side:

-4b + 1500 = 0

Group constants

Group our constants 1500 and 0.
subtract 1500 from both sides

-4b + 1500 - 1500 = 0 - 1500

Cancel 1500 on the left side:

-4b = -1500

Divide each side of the equation by -4

-4b
-4
=
  
-1500
-4

b = 375

Final Answer

b = 375





What is the Answer?
b = 375
