This week's problem comes from the equation category.

How would you solve $$\frac{4(\frac{u}{5}+2)}{4}=\frac{14}{5}$$?

Let's begin!

$\frac{4(\frac{u}{5}+2)}{4}=\frac{14}{5}$

 1 Cancel $$4$$.$\frac{u}{5}+2=\frac{14}{5}$2 Subtract $$2$$ from both sides.$\frac{u}{5}=\frac{14}{5}-2$3 Simplify  $$\frac{14}{5}-2$$  to  $$\frac{4}{5}$$.$\frac{u}{5}=\frac{4}{5}$4 Multiply both sides by $$5$$.$u=\frac{4}{5}\times 5$5 Cancel $$5$$.$u=4$Doneu=4
