How do you solve this equation: 2n - 6 = 4n + 3
The first step is to separate any term with "n" in it from any term without "n". To do this, you would add 6 to both sides to "cancel" it out. This leaves you with: 2n = 4n + 9. Next, you would subtract "4n" from both sides, leaving you with: -2n = 9. The last step is then to divide both sides by -2, leaving you with an answer of n = -9/2 or -4.5, depending on how the answer needs to be simplified.

When parking on a hill, how do you know which way to position the steering wheel?
I was taught using the acronym "UCLA", which stands for "uphill, curb, left always". Essentially, this is all you need to know with this- if you are parking uphill with a curb, turn the steering wheel to the left, so that if your car starts to roll, it will be stopped by the curb. In all other cases, (uphill without a curb and downhill with or without a curb) the wheel should be turned to the right. This way, the curb will stop the car when parked downhill, or the car will be moved off of the road rather than into traffic.
