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

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is it because both of the fraction have 5?

lgbasallote

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

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

tootie149

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

lgbasallote

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you 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

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1guys 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= ??

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

lgbasallote

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

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

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no 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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2you 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/

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

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

tootie149

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

lgbasallote

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