Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1First subtract 1/4 from both sides. Than multiply both sides by 2 and you got your variable.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great you did the left side now lets do the right side whats 3/4  1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1hmm when adding or subtracting fraction you need to add or subtract the top number. what's 3  1 ?

Romero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1great the top number is 2 and the bottom stays the same. 2/4 Thats what you get. ok now you have x/2 = 2/4 (remember the left side you canceled the 1/4 ) now multiply both sides.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1well no it's actually (2x)/2 ... the 2s in both the top and bottom will cancel so you are left with just x now on the right side you do the same 2/4 times 2 = (2*2)/4 Whats 2 times 2?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1umm not your multiplied it but we want to divide. try again 4 divided by 4?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Oh don't take me wrong. Just wanted to know because everyone needs different treatment , clarification needed. And yeah Age doesn't matter, you're right, but that's the best I could ask concerning what I wanted.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It's not about the age but the level of math you are taking.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@Romero Exactly, but how can someone answer to that?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thanks, find the lowest common denominator that would eliminate the fractions in this equation. 8/9x+2/3x=1/9x+45

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1By the type of question they asked. Someone can ask a linear algebra question and they can be a freshman in college.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1@Raya_Atour That's not the question.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You might rather ask to yourself, what number should I multiply this equation with to get rid of all the fractions (denominators)

Romero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It would be 3 if we can get 1/9 to have a 3 in the bottom but we can't because 1/9 is the most simplified version so 9 has to be the lowest.

Romero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Well you found the number that will cancel out the fractions. Now you have to multiply 9 to both sides.

PaigeMya

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0both sides of what @Romero

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Can someone just give me the answer just this once because im doing this just to learn not to study im only ten andill figure out how to get the answer later im tired

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Don't try to get a direct answer, that might not help you in the long run ;) just an advice! Straining makes you more better!
