Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I'm not really sure what that means here? You mean without clearing the denominators?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1get the number on one side of the = and the others on the other side so that you can manipulate them directly.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I would first clear the denominators by multiplying both sides by (x7)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What is \[\frac{x}{x7} \cdot (x7)=?\] \[6 \cdot (x7)=?\] \[\frac{7}{x7} \cdot (x7)=?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the first one \[x^27x\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no @waheguru \[\frac{a}{a} , \text{ assuming of course } a \neq 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So the x's cancel out and it becomes 7x?

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{x(x7)}{(x7)}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There is no need to multiply initially that is just a waste of time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What factor does the bottom and top have in common?

waheguru

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@estudier I know you can cencel out but i wanna try this way

estudier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1The equation is inconsistent!1111

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0The top and bottom both have the factor (x7) in common

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I am not cancelling anything.......

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1x7/x7 = 6 is just nonsense

freckles

Best 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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1You two evidently have nothing better to do.....:)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@estudier I know what you are saying but I just want to convince him

waheguru

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@estudier Then How do you think we solve this

estudier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1There is no solution, the equation is not consistent (it is a false equation)

waheguru

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no its not, there is an asnwer !!!!!!

estudier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1It is like writing 1= 2

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Right but we need to show him that...and convince him... If he doesn't understand your way, then there is no hurt in me showing this other way

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@estudier is right there is no solution

estudier

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1He doesn't want to understand it, that is a different thing.

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0We will get x=7 but that is a contradiction because x cannot be 7

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Doing it the way I was trying to show @waheguru

freckles

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So therefore no solution

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Did you see that she got x=7 but then since we have x7 on bottom then x cannot be 7 so there is no solution
