Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's look like the first equation. What is the lCM of the denominators? 20? Multiply the first equation by 20. 2nd equation: Note 7.5=15/2. So the denominator of the first term is 15. So Multiplying by 30 will clear your fractions up. 3rd equation: 1.75=1and 3/4=7/4. So multiplying by 120 should do it
