    It says Solve the following equation. One point is given for showing steps and one point given for the correct solution.

    you need to isolate n on one side of the equation. you can start by multiplying by 2 to clear the denominator: 3 - n = 2*(3/4)

    Actually it told me to find the LCM and multiply both equations by the lcm >.<

    you don't need to do that if you're solving for n

    The LCM of the denominators which in this case idk the lesson was very confusing but im assumeing they wanted me to use 4 and i multiplyed the equation by for and then in like the last step i noticed it wasnt going to be the rite answer

    2(3-n)/4 = 3/4 (6-2n)/4 = 3/4 6-2n = 3 2n = 3 n - 3/2

    If you are instructed to multiply through by LCM, and you are to be graded by procedure etc. I would multiply both sides by LCM of 4.

    fraction answers make you feel uneasy :)

    it doesn't make sense to use LCM in this case but you should do whatever they ask
