# Solve the following equations for the unknown and prove your solutions. B + 5 = 61 − 6 B

To determine

To calculate: The value of unknown from the equation B+5=616B and prove the result.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is B+5=616B.

Formula used:

Follow the steps as mentioned below to combine the multiple unknown:

Step 1: Move the unknowns to one of the side of the equation, if they are not on the same side.

Step 2: Perfom addition or subtraction of the coefficients according to the equation obtained from step1.

Calculation:

Consider the provided equation, B+5=616B

Move 6B to the left side by adding 6B to the both sides,

B+5=616B+6B             +6B  7B+5=61       ¯

As, the unknown terms are combined now equation can be solve as,

Arrange the known values to the right side by applying the opposite operation of addition, subtract 5 from both sides,
