## ohbev 3 years ago (3/x)+(13/x-11)

1. astrid

so i guess you can put them as porportion correct?

2. ohbev

this is what i got for the answer (16x-20)/(x-11) (x+1)

3. astrid

oh i have it different= im going to draw it out for you to see

x=-0.68

7. ohbev

you have to get the bottoms the same?

8. razor99

9. astrid

well since im want to know what x is then you dividde 16 on both sides and then you put x= -11/16 that make x=-0.68

10. astrid

@razor99 how did you get that explain plis, i want to know

11. astrid

@ohbev do you understand what i am saying?

12. ohbev

wouldn't you times both fractions so you can combined the bottom terms ?

13. ohbev

well lets see if I'm doing this right in general if (t^2 +6t)/t-1 - 7/t-1 = t+7?

14. astrid

so put it this way.3x= 13x-11, thenyou add the 2 like terms 3x+13x= 16x=-11 then you would divide the 16 because you want to know what x means, so its x=-11/16 then you just calculate it and that would = to -0.68 got it now?

15. astrid

i got to go,...

@ohbev sld u take a look at that site

18. razor99

i mean cld

19. ohbev

(t^2 +6t)/(t-1) - (7)/(t-1) = t+7?
