# Solve the following equations for the unknown and prove the solutions. C + 5 = 26 − 2 C

To determine

To calculate: The value of unknown from the equation C+5=262C and prove the result.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided equation is C+5=262C.

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, C+5=262C

Move 2C to the left side by adding 2C to both sides,

C+5=262C+2C             +2C3C+5=26¯

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,

3C+5=26
