n= 11

Work Step by Step

First, you would multiply both sides by 8 so that the denominator on the left is cancelled out, but on the left side you would cross out the 4 and make it a 1 and multiply the 3n-5 quantity by two, leaving you with 5n+1=6n-10. Next, you would add both sides by 10, cancelling out the 10 on the right of the equal sign, leaving you with 5n+11=6n. Lastly, you would subtract both sides by 5n, cancelling out the 5n on the left side of the equal sign, leaving you with the answer that n=11.
