## Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

n = $-\frac{3}{5}$
4(2n + 1) = 3(6n + 3) + 1 Distribute: 8n + 4 = 18n + 9 + 1 Combine like terms: 8n + 4 = 18n + 10 Subtract 18n from both sides: -10n + 4 = 10 Subtract 4 from both sides: -10n = 6 Divide both sides by -10: n = $-\frac{6}{10} = -\frac{3}{5}$
