    with 2 variables, and no other related formula/equation/expression there is no "solution." r + 2b - 16 = 0 is the best re-arrangement of the EXPRESSION ... RaBBitS

    First, decide what term you want to solve for. If you want to solve for r, subtract 2b from both sides of the equation. Or, if you want to solve for b, subtract r from each side of the equation and then divide both sides of the equation by 2.

    You have to tell us what the question is.

    Do you want to solve for b or for r?

    It's impossible to solve both of the unknowns without more information.

    Solve for r would simple be 16 - 2b

    Solve for b would be

    16 - r = 2b

    b = (16 - r)/2

      Member Kendra asked you NOT to provide the solution to the equation but only an explanation of how to arrive at a solution.
