To solve the equation 2j/7 - 1/7 = 3/14, you first need to isolate the variable j. Start by adding 1/7 to both sides of the equation to get rid of the -1/7 term. This gives you 2j/7 = 3/14 + 1/7. Then, combine the fractions on the right side to get a common denominator, which is 14. So, 3/14 + 1/7 becomes 6/14. Now, your equation is 2j/7 = 6/14. To isolate j, multiply both sides of the equation by the reciprocal of 2/7, which is 7/2. This cancels out the fraction on the left side, leaving you with j = (6/14) * (7/2). Simplify this expression to find the value of j.
