help

I got -12/25 but this does not work when i plug it in

is that \[\huge -\frac 45 x = \frac 35\]

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?

ok i see it now thanks

welcome

for the -4/5 * 5 =-4 and 3/5*5=3

yes dont forget x

x=-4/3

wow I get so lost so quick

it's not -4/3

y, what did i do wrong

i assume you tried to solve it mentally. that's what you did wrong. do it step by step

ok give me a min

sure

do i flip the -4/5 when I isolate the x
like this
-4/5x=3/5
x= 3/5 div -5/4

\[\huge -\frac 45 x = \frac 35\]
you start by multiplying both sides by 5

y 5

is it because both of the fraction have 5?

you multiply both sides by 5 because x has a denominator of 5

ok so this gets rid of the fractions

right ?

yes. so what does the equation look like after?

-4x=3 ?

right. so now what would you do?

div both sides by -4

-0.75

x=0.75

-0.75 my bad

yes that is right. but you should but it in fraction for

-4/3

form*

how did you get -4/3? (after i said it wasnt right)

1 1/3 sorry

looked at the wrong part of my paper

1/3

....what did you get again after you divided by 5?

-4x=3

so what did you after that?

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

what did you do*

-3/4

wow I have been typing it upside down

what were you doing to get -4/3?

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

because what i do to one side I do to the other

in order to get x alone I div -4x by -4 and I div 3 by -4 also this gives me -3/4

-4/3

I am so wrong just looked at it

uhhh what?

so what's your answer...-3/4 or -4/3?

IDK!!!!!!!!

sorry for yelling

lol

you have -4x = 3
you said you divide by =4 so what happens if you do that?

the web site wolfram alfa said it is -4/3

could you post the URL of that wolframalpha?

http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=-4%2F5x%3D3%2F5
here it is

reduced form is 1and 1/3

nooo

you told me*

no

in the first one, the x is in the numerator. In the second one, the x is in the denominator

so which one is it?

what is this again??

the x is off to the side of the side like -4/4(x)

then like i said -4/3 is wrong

this is how you type it in wolfram http://www.wolframalpha.com/input/?i=-4%2F5+x%3D3%2F5

wolfram is very meticulous and choosy so you have to wrie the question properly

got it now?

@tootie149 are you still there?
