For this week we've brought you this equation problem.

How would you solve $$5-\frac{4}{4(3-n)}=6$$?

Here are the steps:

$5-\frac{4}{4(3-n)}=6$

 1 Cancel $$4$$.$5-\frac{1}{3-n}=6$2 Subtract $$5$$ from both sides.$-\frac{1}{3-n}=6-5$3 Simplify  $$6-5$$  to  $$1$$.$-\frac{1}{3-n}=1$4 Multiply both sides by $$3-n$$.$-1=3-n$5 Subtract $$3$$ from both sides.$-1-3=-n$6 Simplify  $$-1-3$$  to  $$-4$$.$-4=-n$7 Multiply both sides by $$-1$$.$4=n$8 Switch sides.$n=4$Donen=4
