That's okay :) I apprciate the help

ok, oaktree, go right ahead.

So, first you want to multiply each term by 2 to get rid of the fractions.
OakTree
  • OakTree
You get 4/7r+4r=r+17
OakTree
  • OakTree
Then multiply each term by 7 to get rid of the other fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh! I see it's about getting rid of the fractions?
OakTree
  • OakTree
And you get 4r+28r=7r+119
OakTree
  • OakTree
No, it just makes it easier to solve.
anonymous
  • anonymous
not exactly, but its helpful to simplify the, your goal is to isolate the r
anonymous
  • anonymous
to simplify them*
OakTree
  • OakTree
So then you can simplify and get 25r=119
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh! That makes sense. My professor kept telling me to multiply everything by 14
OakTree
  • OakTree
That also works because it is really doing both at once, but it's simpler to do them in two steps to prevent mistakes.
OakTree
  • OakTree
From 25r=119, you can easily get r=119/25.

  • anonymous
That's where I got confused! Thank you both sooo much!
OakTree
  • OakTree
Which I don't believe can be simplified.

So that's your final answer.

You O.K. there?

oaktree, is that right? mustn't you multiply it to the other side as well( simple an important rule, you can do something to one side of the equation, as long as you do the same to the other side.)
OakTree
  • OakTree
What do you mean?
OakTree
  • OakTree
Multiply what?
OakTree
  • OakTree
If you mean the 2 and the 7, I did multiply both sides. Check my equation, maybe I messed it up somewhere.
anonymous
  • anonymous
ya, i noticed that. did you inform her about it?
anonymous

sorry, this site crashes my cp,
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah I saw it.
