Rewrite the expression.
1n=16
1n=16
1n=16
1n=16
Set up the rational expression with the same denominator over the entire equation.
Tap for more steps…
Multiply each term by a factor of 1 that will equate all the denominators. In this case, all terms need a denominator of 6n. The 1n expression needs to be multiplied by 66 to make the denominator 6n. The 16 expression needs to be multiplied by nn to make the denominator 6n.
1n⋅66=16⋅nn
Multiply the expression by a factor of 1 to create the least common denominator (LCD) of 6n.
1(6)
Multiply 6 by 1.
66n=16⋅nn
Multiply the expression by a factor of 1 to create the least common denominator (LCD) of 6n.
1(n)
Multiply n by 1.
66n=n6n
66n=n6n
Since the expression on each side of the equation has the same denominator, the numerators must be equal.
6=n
Rewrite the equation as n=6.
n=6
