2.6A = kB + C

A-C = kB

(A-C)/k = B

I will tweak the equation just a little bit and then,

1.8b + 1.4=2.66 ( more comfortable to work with)

you have to try and get rid of the decimal and you do that by multiplying by 100 both sides

1.8b (100) + 1.4(100) =2.66(100)

that' ll give you whole numbers

180b+140=266 ( friendly numbers )

now let's clean up a little bit

180b + 140 - 140 = 266 -140

180b =126 ( you see that, how you can solve for

then you get

b=7/10 which you can not be simplified any further.
