Work Step by Step

In order to solve for s, we first need to get all of the terms with an s in them on the same side of the equation. Then, we need to isolate s by getting all of the numbers that are on the same side of the equation as s on the other side of the equation. Thus, we obtain: $s=42+.4s \\\\ .6s=42 \\\\ s=70$
