oops sorry its x/3=x+2/5

something's wrong, you aren't given the correct choice....check again your writing

4. anonymous

nope this time is correct and also the answer choices

x=3x+6/5 , so 2x=-6/5, and x=-6/10=-3/5 so none of the above.....

6. anonymous

$\frac{x}{3}=\frac{x+2}{5}$ $5x=3(x+2)$ $5x=3x+6$ $2x=6$ $x=3$

omg calistar I told you that didn't write it correctly...you must write (x+2)/5 if you want to get the correct answer....if you don't do that you'll make mistakes all the time....satellite gave the correct answer
