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
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
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
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= ??
-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
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
nooo
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/
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?
\[\huge -\frac 45 x = \frac 35\] \(\LARGE{-4x=\frac{3\times5}{5}}\) \(\LARGE{-4x=3}\) \(\LARGE{x=\frac{3}{-4}}\)
