Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:) umm 1 more question since you are timesing x by 1 over 4 wouldent you divide 4 by both sides of the equal sign

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we divide both sides by 4 that would be possible, but pointless in solveing for x: (1/4)x/4 = 12/4 (1/16)x = 3 doesnt help towards our cause....
