Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if you want to get rid of the fractions, you can multiply the equation by 40 > 5(z+3) = 32(z+ 1/8)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, I hope you can read this: First, simplify the equations: \[1/8(z) + 3/8 = 4/5(z) + 4/40\] Next, collect liketerms (z's) on one side of the equation: \[1/8(z)  4/5(z) = 4/40  3/8\] Multiply through to get a common denominator (of 40): \[5/40(z)  32/40(z) = 4/40  15/40\] Simplify each side by subtracting the like terms on each side: \[27/40z = 11/40\] Divide the 27/40 into 11/40, or multiply by the reciprocal: \[z = (11/40) * (40/27)\] ..and there you have it. z = 11/27 or just 11/27.
