Q = 6

Work Step by Step

Step 1) 3 + 5q = 9 + 4q Step 2) 3 + 5q - 4q = 9 + 4q - 4q ... Subtract 4q from each side of the equation Step 3) 3 + 1q = 9 ... Simplify Step 4) 3 - 3 + 1q = 9 - 3 ... Subtract 3 from both sides Step 5) 1q = 6 ... Simplify Step 6) 1q/1 = 6/1 ... Divide each side by 1 Step 7) q = 6 ... Final Answer
