it doesn't? it would be written as 3/8x-1/24=1/6x+1/3; just multiply through,
Hmm..I don't know how to type in fractions here. Those are fractions. Does that make more sense?
okay so what i'm seeing is \[3/8(x-1/9)=1/6(x+2) \]
Not the answer you are looking for? Search for more explanations.
Right. I'm doing a step-by-step practice that says it simplifies to 3/8x-1/24=1/6x+1/3, but I don't understand how the program got that. It doesn't tell me.
okay, well that is correct. so look at the left side first.
multiply the 3/8 by the first and the second term so..
when multiplying fractions you multiply the numerators together and the denominators together. so \[(3*1)/(8*9) = 3/72\]
which can be simplified to \[1/24\].
so the left side now looks like \[3/8*x-1/24\]
does that make sense?
Ok, yes. Thank you.
right, well if that works the right side of the equation is done exactly the same way
