forgot to div both sides by 4 and because i can not reduce 3/4 that is my answer
 2 years ago

lgbasallote Group TitleBest 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

godorovg Group TitleBest 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= ??
