Determine the value of rm In the given equation.
$$1000-n=258$$ Write the equation
$$1000-n-1000=258-1000$$ Subtract 1000 from both sides
$$-n=-742$$ Simplify
$$-\frac{1n}{1}=\frac{-742}{-1}$$ Divide both sides by -1
$$n=742$$ Simplify
Check by substituting the value of n to the original equation.
$$1000-n=258$$ Write the equation
$$1000-742=258$$ Substitute the value of m
$$258 =258$$ This statement is true
