first expand the parentheses 26 = 6*5 - 6*4f 26 = 30 - 24f can you continue from here?

not quite 26-30 = -24f -24f = -4 f = -4/-24 = 1/6 or 0.166666667

ok 26 = 30 - 24f move all numbers to LHS: by subtracting 30 from each side 26-30 = 30-30 - 24f -4 = -24f divide both sides by -24: -4/-24 = -24f/-24 1/6 = f
