    Let F = acres in field

    14 = 0.7*F so 14/0.7 = 140/7 = 20 = F

    20 - 14 = 6 acres to disk

    70% = 0.7

    The first day he disks 14 acres, which is 70% of the field

    0.7x = 14

    Divide both sides by 0.7

    x = 20

    Remaining = 30% of x 

    R = 0.3x

    R = 0.3(20)

    R = 6

    6 acres <––––––
