If the equation is 4a = 2b - 7, we can solve for a or b.
To solve for a:
First, we isolate the variable a by subtracting 2b from both sides of the equation:
4a - 2b = -7
Since 4a - 2b cannot be simplified further, we have the solution:
a = (-7 + 2b)/4
To solve for b:
First, we isolate the variable b by adding 7 and then dividing by 2 on both sides of the equation:
4a + 7 = 2b
(4a + 7)/2 = b
Therefore, b = (4a + 7)/2.
