Determine the value of ¢ in the given equation.
3,000 — a = 1,096 Write the equation
3,000—a— 3,000 = 1,096—3,000 Subtract 3,000 from both sides
-a=-1904 Simplify
$$\displaystyle-{1}\frac{{a}}{{-{{1}}}}=-\frac{{1904}}{{-{{1}}}}$$ Divide both sides by —1
a=1904 Simplify
Check by substituting the value of @ to the original equation.
3,000— a = 1,096 Write the equation
3,000— 1,904 = 1,096 Substitute the value of a
1,096 = 1,096 The statement is true
