### Solve for F

Solve C = (5/9)(F - 32) for F.

I think the first step is to multiply both sides by 9. This will remove the fraction.

9C = 9[(5/9)(F - 32)]

9C = 5(F - 32)

9C = 5F - 160

Is this OK so far?

In the right direction.

You continue solving my problems without me asking you to do so. How am I ever going to learn this stuff, brother?

Please, don't solve the problem unless I ask you to do so. Otherwise, my self-study time is a waste of energy.

I interpret this as meaning "Don't give me the whole answer but rather just tell me if I'm on track for an answer".

If someone wants to include the whole solution why not put it in hide tags so the OP doesn't see it but can refer to it to confirm their answer.

Exactly. Telling me the whole answer does not help at all.
