multiply both sides by -1, then multiply both sides by 8 and finally multiply both sides by 1/5
like this? 5/40 x = 9/50

post what you got when you multiplied both sides by -1
5/8 x = 9/10
then post what you got after multiplying both sides by 8
5x = 72/10
then post what you get when you multiply both sides by 1/5
did you get it?
x = 72/50
there you go. you can cancel out 2 in the numerator and denominator to get x = 36/25
wow, i did it! thx!
great!
what is 2/3 times 3/2?
6/6 =1?
what is 4/3 times 3/4?
12/12 = 1
so what is -5/8 times -8/5
40/40 = 1
so -5/8x * -8/5 = -9/10*-8/5 x = 9*8/5*10 x = 72/50 = 36/25
the lesson here is if you multiply a number n by 1/n, you will always get 1. 1/n is called the multiplicative identity of n
oh ok, i see now. great! thx!
