How do you solve this?

-6(n - 8) = 4(12 - 5n) + 14n

I got 0 = 0 the first time, but I think I should have gotten n = 0.

Just want to be sure. What do you get, and if you could, show your work.

-6(n - 8) = 4(12 - 5n) + 14n

I got 0 = 0 the first time, but I think I should have gotten n = 0.

Just want to be sure. What do you get, and if you could, show your work.

-6(n - 8) = 4(12 - 5n) + 14n

-6n + 48 = 48 - 20n + 14n {used distributive property}

-6n + 48 = 48 - 6n {combined like terms}

-6n = -6n {subtracted 48 from both sides}

0 = 0

When the variable disappears and you get a true statement,

this means n could be any number, and there are

"infinitely many solutions“.
