∙•❁ Okay time to solve this Step-By-Step.❁•∙  16−2n−5+8n=65 ∙•❁ So the first part we need to Simplify both sides of this equation, so: 16−2n−5+8n=65 ∙•❁ We are going to simplify this Step-By-Step. 16−2n−5+8n=65 16+−2n+−5+8n=65 ∙•❁ Combine like terms: (−2n+8n)+(16+−5)=65 6n+11=65 6n+11=65 ∙•❁ Now subtract 11 from both sides. 6n+11−11=65−11 6n=54 ∙•❁ Now divide both sides by 6 and you'll get your answer: 6n/6=54/6 ∙•❁ Your final answer is: n=9 ∙•❁I hope this helps!❁•∙
