First subtract 1/4 from both sides. Than multiply both sides by 2 and you got your variable.
anonymous
  • anonymous
I dont know how to subtract from both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
what's 1/4 - 1/4

great you did the left side now lets do the right side whats 3/4 - 1/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
-1/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
hmm when adding or subtracting fraction you need to add or subtract the top number. what's 3 - 1 ?
anonymous
  • anonymous
2
anonymous
  • anonymous
great 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
whats x/2 times 2
anonymous
  • anonymous
4
anonymous
  • anonymous
well 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?
anonymous
  • anonymous
4
anonymous
  • anonymous
ok whats 4/4
anonymous
  • anonymous
16
anonymous
  • anonymous
umm not your multiplied it but we want to divide. try again 4 divided by 4?
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
great so the right side is 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
and the left side is x
anonymous
  • anonymous
x=1
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh thx
anonymous

Sorry to interrupt you guys, How old are you PaigeMya?

Age doesn't matter....
anonymous
  • anonymous
That's a creepy question @amogh
anonymous
  • anonymous
Yeah why do you want to know my age?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay well im ten
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can i also just ask another question right now for you guys to help me with?
anonymous
  • anonymous
It's not about the age but the level of math you are taking.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Sure
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Romero Exactly, but how can someone answer to that?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Thanks, find the lowest common denominator that would eliminate the fractions in this equation. 8/9x+2/3x=1/9x+45
anonymous
  • anonymous
By the type of question they asked. Someone can ask a linear algebra question and they can be a freshman in college.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Which fraction has the lowest top number (numerator)?
anonymous
  • anonymous
1
anonymous
  • anonymous
1/9
anonymous
  • anonymous
|dw:1334995268203:dw|
anonymous
  • anonymous
so x = 1
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Raya_Atour im sorry but i dont think thats the answer...
anonymous
  • anonymous
@Raya_Atour That's not the question.
anonymous
  • anonymous
You might rather ask to yourself, what number should I multiply this equation with to get rid of all the fractions (denominators)
anonymous
  • anonymous
It 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.
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay
anonymous
  • anonymous
So now what @Romero
anonymous
  • anonymous
Well you found the number that will cancel out the fractions. Now you have to multiply 9 to both sides.
anonymous
  • anonymous
both sides of what @Romero
anonymous
  • anonymous
the equation
anonymous
  • anonymous
Can 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
anonymous
  • anonymous
Romero answered it!
anonymous
  • anonymous
Wait then whats the answer?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh its 9
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh thx
anonymous
  • anonymous
Don't try to get a direct answer, that might not help you in the long run ;) just an advice! Straining makes you more better!
