yes, it is how did you type in the fraction?

try clicking the equation button by the comment box...you should see the fraction command there

anyway if you multiply both sides by 5 what do you get?

y, what did i do wrong

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
i assume you tried to solve it mentally. that's what you did wrong. do it step by step

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
do i flip the 4/5 when I isolate the x like this 4/5x=3/5 x= 3/5 div 5/4

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
\[\huge \frac 45 x = \frac 35\] you start by multiplying both sides by 5
 one year ago

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
is it because both of the fraction have 5?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you multiply both sides by 5 because x has a denominator of 5

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
ok so this gets rid of the fractions
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes. so what does the equation look like after?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
right. so now what would you do?

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
div both sides by 4

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
yes that is right. but you should but it in fraction for

so what did you after that?

4x/5=3/5 =>4x=3*5/5 =>4x=3 =>x=3/4

wow I have been typing it upside down

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
what were you doing to get 4/3?
 one year ago

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
forgot to div both sides by 4 and because i can not reduce 3/4 that is my answer
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you need to remember that you divide both sides by the coefficient of x ALWAYS... in this case your coefficient is 4..that's why you divide both sides by 4

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
because what i do to one side I do to the other

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
in order to get x alone I div 4x by 4 and I div 3 by 4 also this gives me 3/4

godorovgBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1
guys this problem is simple 4/5x=3/5 take the 4/5 and divide by 3/5 so you have X= 4/5 divided by 3/5 now flip the 3/5 to 5/3 so that is to change the divide to times so now you have 4/5 times 5/3= ??

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
I am so wrong just looked at it
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
so what's your answer...3/4 or 4/3?
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you have 4x = 3 you said you divide by =4 so what happens if you do that?
 one year ago

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the web site wolfram alfa said it is 4/3

no need that is right 4/3 that is what I got when I worked the problem out as well.look at my post where I went step by step through this problem.

reduced form is 1and 1/3
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
you told be the problem was \[\huge \frac 45 x = \frac 35\] what you posted in wolframalpha was \[\huge \frac{4}{5x} = \frac 35\] see the difference/

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
in the first one, the x is in the numerator. In the second one, the x is in the denominator

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
so which one is it?

tootie149Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
the x is off to the side of the side like 4/4(x)
 one year ago

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
then like i said 4/3 is wrong

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
this is how you type it in wolfram http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=4%2F5+x%3D3%2F5

lgbasalloteBest ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2
wolfram is very meticulous and choosy so you have to wrie the question properly
