Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0jwaddell your equation is little confusing. if solve for x. then x would equal some number with T in them.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you solve it that way then. \[x=(4(\frac{T}{5})1)+2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0first, distribute 5 to (x2)/2 sop, we get (5x10)/4 + 1=0, if T=0 then, the LCD is 4, so it will become (5x10+4)/4=0 5x6=0 5x=6 x=1.2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(3m+2)/(m1)=A, then cross multiply, you will get 3m+2=AmA 3mAm=2A m(3A)=2A m=(2A)/(3A)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0jwaddell06, Do you still want to see how the first problem was solved, now that the dust has settled?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[T=\frac{5 (x2)}{4}+1 \]\[T1=\frac{5 (x2)}{4} \]\[4(T1)=5 (x2)\]\[\frac{4(T1)}{5}=(x2)\]\[\frac{4(T1)}{5}+2=x \]Simplify the left side to obtain:\[\frac{2}{5} (2 T+3)=x \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now why wouldnt you multiply the 5 into x2

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The object is to isolate x on the right hand equation side. The easiest path for me was to divide by 5 leaving x  2. When +2 is added to each side, x is left alone.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That makes sense a little but i thought whenever you were given something like 5(x2) you were supposed to make it 5x10 then isolate x from there.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Well the final result should be OK. Give me a minute to work it out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4(T1)=5 (x2) \]\[4(T1)=5 x10 \]\[4(T1)+10=5 x \]\[\frac{4(T1)+10}{5}=x \]\[\frac{2}{5} (2 T+3)=x \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok i get it up to the last part how do you get 2/5(2T+3)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{4(T1)+10}{5} \]Simplify the numerator\[\frac{(4 T+6)}{5}\]Factor the numerator\[\frac{(2 (2 T+3))}{5}=x \]Factor the expresssion\[\frac{2}{5} (2 T+3) \] I actually use Mathematica to do the calculations and had to resolve the problem by hand to answer you follow up questions.
