If 3 times a number minus 2 equals 13, 5 is the number.

Solution:

3n -2 = 13

3n = 13 + 2

3n = 15

3n/3 = 15/3

n = 5

Solution:

3n -2 = 13

3n = 13 + 2

3n = 15

3n/3 = 15/3

n = 5

This answer has been confirmed as correct and helpful.

Solve this equation: –9h – 6 + 12h + 40 = 22.
A. h = – 4
B. h = 4
C. h = –4/7
D. h = 24 **Weegy:** –9h – 6 + 12h + 40 = 22;
3h + 34 = 22;
3h = 22 - 34;
3h = -12;
h = -12/3;
h = -4 (More)
