First subtract 1/4 from both sides. Than multiply both sides by 2 and you got your variable.

hmm when adding or subtracting fraction you need to add or subtract the top number. what's 3  1 ?
 one year ago

RomeroBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.

RomeroBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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?

Yeah why do you want to know my age?

amoghBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
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.

Can i also just ask another question right now for you guys to help me with?

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

@Romero Exactly, but how can someone answer to that?

Thanks, find the lowest common denominator that would eliminate the fractions in this equation. 8/9x+2/3x=1/9x+45

By the type of question they asked. Someone can ask a linear algebra question and they can be a freshman in college.

@Raya_Atour That's not the question.

You might rather ask to yourself, what number should I multiply this equation with to get rid of all the fractions (denominators)
 one year ago

RomeroBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
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.
 one year ago

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

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

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!
