Answer

$c = \frac{17}{7}$

Work Step by Step

Our goal is to isolate c. To accomplish this we will first add 2c to both sides to get all of the c's on one side: 5c - 9 = 8 - 2c 7c - 9 = 8 We will then isolate c by adding 9 to both sides and then dividing by 7: 7c - 9 = 8 7c = 17 $c = \frac{17}{7}$
