Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0This gives a false answer. By adding 1/3 to both sides then subtracting x from both sides you are told that ... 0 = 7/12

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We both know this is not true!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0There is an answer to it.You need to find the common denominator or something.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I know the aswer is 7. I don't know how to get the answer though.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Irene just think logically. You are told if you add something to x it is the same result as taking something away from x. See it like this I am thinking of a number that when you add it to a euro it is the same as taking it away from a euro. The onlt thing it can be is 0

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0...and even this does not satisfy your equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I still believe there is an answer... lol. Maybe the common denominator is 12 since the denominators need to be multiplied.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Sorry Irene my analogy was rubbish! If you add 1/4 to a euro dollar whatever, it is the same as subtracting 1/3 from the same euro. It does not add up, so to speak!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0x1/3 = x+1/4 add 1/3 to both sides x = x + 1/4 + 1/3 now subtracrt x from both sides so separating variables and constants 0 = 1/4 + 1/3 0= 7/12 Are you happy that 7/12 is equal to 0?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Wait, did you read it wrong? I meant x1 OVER 3 = x + 1 OVER 4.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then yhe answer is (x1)4=(x+1)3 4x4=3x+3 x=7 happy..................

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So you cross multiply in the beginning? And thank you, i'm happy now!

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0welcome............yes,u have to cross multiply the denominators................

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0(x  1)/3 = (x + 1)/4 multiply both sides by 3 x1 = 3 (x + 1)/4 multiply both sides by 4 4 (x1)= 3 (x + 1 Expand bracketrs 4x4 = = 3x + 3 Subtract 3x from both sides x4 = 3 add 4 to both sides x = 7
