Work Step by Step
We need to get the v alone. Thus, we cancel out the addition by subtracting 2.458 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation $1.025v=5.125$. In order to cancel out multiplication, we use division, so we divide both sides by 1.025 to get that $v=5$. We plug 5 in for v and confirm that our answer is, indeed, correct.
