I would start by multiplying both sides of the equation by 3x+9 and see what happens :)

Thanks, I'll see if that gets me the answer.

I have a suggestion here. Shall I spit it out?

Nah, don't work, it's a fill-in answer. @ParthKohli Sure.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Multiply both the numerator and denominator of \(\Large {2 \over x + 3}\).That'll get you two like terms :)
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Multiply both numerator and denominator by 3*
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay, bottom is 9, top is 6. Is there another step?
anonymous
  • anonymous
I do see the nine and nine, like terms.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
\(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large{1 \over 3x + 9}- {3(2) \over 3(x + 3)} }\)

  • anonymous
I see, but still confusing.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
I don't find anything confusing here. \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {x \over y} = {ax \over ay}}\) This is what I am doing here.

  • anonymous
I know, but this is one of the first units, I'm really, for some reason, having trouble with. Okay, you say, 'Multiply both numerator and denominator by 3*', Okay then what do I do?
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
You'll get two like terms :)
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
First simplify the thing I gave you
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[1/3x + 9 - 6 / x9\] ^^Don't know how to really format it, but the 6 and 9 is there.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
No no
anonymous
  • anonymous
Or am I missing something
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
\(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow 3(x + 3) = 3x + 9 }\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay look, we both are going in circles, but probably my fault, but I see the like terms, but what do I do now? :L lol...
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
just operate on the numerators.
anonymous
  • anonymous
Nope, couldn't get anything. Okay, I don't want to waste anymore of your precious time, so I'ma ask for a straight up answer? This pellet is just hard for me, point blank.
anonymous
  • anonymous
or tell me next steps, I don't mind learning it.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
Wolfram if you want the straight answer.
anonymous
  • anonymous
lol i just want to learn the steps, but I don't want to waste ur time tutoring me.
ParthKohli
  • ParthKohli
\(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {1 \over 3x+ 9} -{6 \over 3x + 9} = 2 }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow \Large {-5 \over 3x + 9} = 2 }\) Multiply both sides by 3x + 9 \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow-5 = 2(3x+ 9) }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow -5 = 6x + 18 }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow -23 = 6x }\) \(\color{Black}{\Rightarrow x = {-23 \over 6} }\)

k i was good up till the part with the Multiply both sides by 3x + 9... but Ima let you go, I promise, Im not here just for the answer. Ima learn this stuff, I don't want to be a leecher my whole life. Thanks, bye.
