Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Multiply both sides by 10, you get: \[10x6=7 \implies 10x=13 \implies x={13 \over 10}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it \[x\frac{3}{5}=\frac{7}{10}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or \[\frac{x3}{5}=\frac{7}{10}\]?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well then the answer in the book is wrong, because anwar is right.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one step problem if you do not mind the fractions: \[x\frac{3}{5}=\frac{7}{10}\] add \[\frac{3}{5}\] to both sides to get \[x=\frac{7}{10}+\frac{3}{5}=\frac{7}{10}+\frac{6}{10}=\frac{13}{10}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0No i figured it out. 3/5 is equal to 6/10 so to solve for x i have to get x alone so i minus 6/10 from both sides & 7/10 minus 6/10 equals 1/10 so that makes x=1/10

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.03/5 does equal 6/10 but you have to add 6/10 to both sides and not subtract it because you have a 3/5 and not a +3/5

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0unfortunately \[\frac{3}{5}\frac{3}{5}=\frac{6}{5}\] not 0. you have to add \[\frac{3}{5}\] to both sides

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0scratch that, idk why it says 1/10 for the answer in the book. i'll leave that for the teacher to explain.thanks anyways :)
