## anonymous 4 years ago how to solve for s: ((0.154*s)-161700)/1800000=((0.154*s)-69300)/3000000

Find the LCD. The LCD is 9,000,000 $\frac{5(0.154s-161700)}{9000000}=\frac{3(0.154s-69300)}{9000000}$ Thus, $5(.0154s-161700)=3(0.154s-69300)$ Distribute the 5 on the left side of the equation and the 3 on the right side. $.77s-808500=.462s-207900$ Isolate s and solve: $.308s=600600$ $\frac{.308s}{.308}=\frac{600600}{.308}$ $s=1950000$
