Given: 72.42 = k(24 + n/100)
Expand right side to get: 72.42 = 24k + kn/100

We already know that 72.42 = 72 + 42/100

So, we conclude that 72 = 24k
And kn = 42

If 72 = 24k, then k = 3
Now take the second equation, and replace k with 3 to get: 3n = 42
This means n = 14

So, k + n = 3 + 14 = 17

Answer: 17

Cheers,
Brent

if \(K = 100\) and \(n = - 2327.58\)

This satisfies the eqn and condition and their sum is \(-2227.58\)

Good point!
I have added a restriction to n to prevent more than 1 correct answer.

Cheers,
