    I can't believe you actually thought that a mixed number was the solution.

    There aren't even any mixed numbers to begin with.

    6/5x+2/10x=28/10 12x/10 + 2/10 = 28/10 14x/10 = 28/10 14x/10 - 28/10 = 0 (14x - 28)/10 = 0 14x - 28 = 0 14x = 28 x = 28/14 x = 2

    3/4x+2/3x=48/8 3x/4 + 2x/3 = 6 9x/12 + 8x/12 = 6 17x/12 = 6/1 17x = 72 x = 72/17 That's what I got which means jus may have posted it wrong.

    Jus, from now on, when posting fractional equations, use equation editor or the drawing function because you don't know how to post fractions linearly, sorry buddy.

    In equation editor, type frac{a}{b} to post fractions

    For example, to post 6/5x+2/10x=28/10, do this: \[\frac{6x}{5} + \frac{2x}{10} = \frac{28}{10}\] This is exactly what you type to get that: frac{6x}{5} + frac{2x}{10} = frac{28}{10} or if you want to type this: \[\frac{6}{5}x + \frac{2}{10}x = \frac{28}{10}\] you type: frac{6}{5}x + frac{2}{10}x = frac{28}{10} Get it?
