Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0please explain why u have to multiply by 8+x on both. why not 1x on both?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0always be clear in what you are writing. use brackets to make your meaning clear. it is (1x)/(8+x) = 10 multiply by (8+x) on both sides (1x)*(8+x)/(8+x) = 80+10x the (8+x) cancels out in the numerator and denomiator on the left hand side, leaving 1x = 80+10x. I trust you can take it from there?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you multiply by 8+x since you want to cancel it out from the denominator.
