I was about to post the correct solution.

- Hero

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

- Hero

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

- anonymous

Here is a similar one - 6/5x+2/10x=28/10

- Hero

Okay, let me solve it first please

- anonymous

ok

- Hero

Word of advice, try to post sentences and math equations on SEPARATE lines

- Hero

Just to confirm, is 6x/5 negative?

- anonymous

6/5x+2/10x=28/10=?

- anonymous

I see ur point on sep lines - thanks!

- Hero

There you go...You see what I mean? See how easily you can confuse someone?

- Hero

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

- Hero

Try x = 2 and see what happens.

- anonymous

Hero, how did you get 6 on the first question?

- anonymous

BINGO, Hero!!!

- Hero

I didn't. I hadn't finished solving it before jus gave the answer.

- Hero

But I can still post the solution to that if you want @ 14yamaka

- anonymous

please!

- Hero

k

- anonymous

here is another one

- anonymous

I'm probably completely misunderstanding the question lol

- anonymous

5x-9=15+11x

- anonymous

6x=-24
x=-4

- Hero

I'm still trying to figure out the first one.

- Hero

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.

- Hero

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.

- anonymous

Good advice XD it's hard for anybody to post it though lol

- Hero

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

- anonymous

new to this - sorry. Dont even know all of the tools yet

- Hero

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?

Thank you, hero!! Appreciate the help. :oP
