no like 1 over 4 as a fraction, then times x equals 12

when we take a pie and divide up amongst the relatives at thanksgiving, we are handing our fractions of the pie to each person....fractions ARE divisions

:) umm 1 more question since you are timesing x by 1 over 4 wouldent you divide 4 by both sides of the equal sign
amistre64
  • amistre64
if 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....

remeber, any number "over" itself is equal to "1" 4/4 = 1 (4/4)x = x

(4)(1/4)x = 12(4) (4/4)x = 48 x = 48
