$2/5 (x-7)+ 3/8 = 3/4 (x-2) + 2/3$

2. anonymous

multiply the entire thing by 120

3. anonymous

to get rid of all the fractions

4. anonymous

i am getting a wrong answer

5. anonymous

and no i need the answer in a fraction form

6. anonymous

that comes later $120*(2/5(x−7)+3/8)=(3/4(x−2)+2/3)*120$

7. anonymous

dont worry about in fraction form, the answer will probably turn out to be a fraction, just start by multplying both sides by 120 to get rid of the fractions so it will be easier to solve.........

8. anonymous

48(x-7)+45=90(x-2)+80

9. anonymous

now solve it

10. anonymous

i need to show work in fraction form and the answer

11. anonymous

i get 283/138

12. anonymous

$\frac{ 2 }{ 5 }(x-7)+\frac{ 3 }{ 8}=\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }(x-2)+\frac{ 2 }{ 3}$ $\frac{ 2 }{ 5 }x - \frac{ 14 }{ 5 }+\frac{ 3 }{ 8}= \frac{ 3 }{ 4}x-\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }+\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }$
