\[\frac{7}{20}f+\frac{2}{5}=\frac{1}{4}f\] get your f's together add 7f/20 on both sides \[\frac{2}{5}=\frac{1}{4}f+\frac{7}{20}f\] find a common denominator \[\frac{2}{5}=\frac{5}{20}f+\frac{7}{20}f\] \[\frac{2}{5}=\frac{12}{20}f\] we can simplify 12/12 \[\frac{2}{5}=\frac{3}{5}f\] \[\frac{5}{3}*\frac{2}{5}=f\]

a7med did you do f=20/12*2/5

so you tried to cross multipliy so it should be 5*12f=2*20

no, u 20f*2=5*12 i'm sure

we have 12f/20=2/5 to get f by itself we multiplied by the reciprocal of 12/20 on both sides giving us (20/12)(12f/20)=(20/12)(2/5) f=40/60=2/3

we can also check f=2/3 so we plug 2/3 whereever we see an f in the orignal problem (7/20)(2/3)+2/5=(1/4)(2/3) 14/60+2/5=2/12 7/30+2/5=2/12 7/30+12/30=2/12 5/30=2/12 1/6=1/6 2/3 is definitely correct!
