|dw:1344036321046:dw| Just the 2 equations on the top

so \[\huge a = \frac{bx}{y}\] agree?

yep

so if i substitute that into the second equation i will have \[\huge \frac{\frac{bx}{y}}{2b} = \frac{3xc}{y}\] you following?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yup
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
so again i simplify \[\huge \frac{bx}{2by} = \frac{3xc}{y}\] do you see the next step now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
ohhh You can do that?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
which one?
anonymous
  • anonymous
bx/y/2b=bx/2by
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
\[\huge \frac{\frac{bx}{y}}{2b} \implies \frac{bx}{y} \times \frac{1}{2b} \implies \frac{bx}{2by}\] see it now?
anonymous
  • anonymous
Okay.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
so do you see what you can do in \[\huge \frac{bx}{2by} = \frac{3xc}{y}\]

I got 6xc=x
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
you can simplify more
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
both sides have x right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
6c=0?
anonymous
  • anonymous
c=0?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
x/x is 0?
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
a number divided by itself is 0?`
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
is 2/2 = 0? 3/3 = 0? 4/4 = 0?
anonymous
  • anonymous
one.
anonymous
  • anonymous
same thing :/
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
right
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
it's not same thing
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
write it down and you'll see it's not the same thing

1=0
anonymous
  • anonymous
c=1/6, then.
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
correct
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
and 1 is not equal to 0
lgbasallote
  • lgbasallote
anyway c = 1/6
anonymous
  • anonymous
thanks
