get the number on one side of the = and the others on the other side so that you can manipulate them directly.

What factor does the bottom and top have in common?

@estudier I know you can cencel out but i wanna try this way

I am not cancelling anything.......

x7/x7 = 6 is just nonsense
 one year ago

frecklesBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
\[\frac{x \not{(x7)}}{ \not{(x7)}}\] Imagine that canceler thingy is over the whole factor (x7) Couldn't do it in latex so we have the first one x So Now try the other two

You two evidently have nothing better to do.....:)

no its not, there is an asnwer !!!!!!

@estudier is right there is no solution
 one year ago

He doesn't want to understand it, that is a different thing.

We will get x=7 but that is a contradiction because x cannot be 7
