Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you have to get a commmon demoninator, therefore, simplify your equation, put all x's on one side, amd all other values on the other side, because you want to isolate x to obtain a value for it, 3+x/6 = 7x/4 37 = x/4 x/6 6(37) = 3x/12 2x/12 1842 = 5x/12 2448 = 5x x = 489.6 if im wrong someone plz correct me

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0First do the operations to the fractions: 3+(x/6)=7(x/4) (18/6)+(x/6)=(28/4)(x/4) (18+x)/6=(28x)/4 Then you pass the denominators to the other side: (18+x)*4=(28x)*6 18*4+x*4=28*6x*6 72+4x=1686x 4x+6x=16872 10x=96 x=48/5 or 9.6
