Work Step by Step

We start with the given equation: $26=6(5-4f)$ We use the distributive property to expand the right side of the equation: $26=30-24f$ Next, we subtract $30$ on each side to isolate the $f$ term: $26-30=30-30-24f$ We combine like terms on each side of the equation: $-4=-24f$ We divide by $-4$ on each side of the equation: $f=\frac{-4}{-24}$ Finally, we divide the result by $\frac{-4}{-4}$ to simplify: $\frac{-4}{-24}\div\frac{-4}{-4}=\frac{1}{6}=f$
