Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I made 2x into a fraction and found a common denominator to combine 2/1+5/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[2x = \frac{2x*10x}{10x} = \frac{20x^2}{10x}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Just multiply both sides by 10x with the requirement that x cannot be 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well I told you the first step.. what do you have when you multiply both sides by 10x?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where did the /3 on the left come from??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wait.. is the original equation \[\frac{2x + 5}{10x + 3} = \frac{1}{3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you need to use parens better when describing the problem ;p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok, so multiply both sides by 10x + 3 (with the stipulation that x cannot be 3/10)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so far i have 2x + 4 = 10x/3...on the right track?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no. you should have 2x + 5 = (10x + 3)/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i skipped to the next step...where 3/3 = 1 and then subtracted from other side...does x=1

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Err wait. What did you do? x=1 isn't right

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so 2x + 5 = 10x +1 is that correct and i can go from there

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You have to divide the whole 10x + 3 by 3, you can't just divide the 3 on top and leave the 10x alone. I suggest instead multiplying both sides by 3 to get rid of the fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i know what i did...just noticed that...i started over with a clean piece of paper

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you forgot that the part on the right was divided by 3, so multiplying by 3 just cancels the denominator on the right side

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i left my brain behind...sorry

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0give me one minute..going to reason through...what bothers me the most...is that this looks simple and i feel like i can solve more difficult problems more easily

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[3(2x + 5) = \frac{3(10x + 3)}{3}\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you should have that written on your paper

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so which 3's should cancel eachother out?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{3(10x + 3)}{3} = \frac{3}{3}(10x + 3) = 1(10x + 3) = 10x + 3\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok...that was my problem....i wanted to cancel out the wrong 3...noted

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0np, just be sure to go back over the process and make sure you understand not only what we did, but why what you were doing doesn't work

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0definitely will...starred it on my sheet as "needs more attention" lol
