Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 2x }{ 4\pi }+ \frac{ 1x }{ 2 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1is that really \(\pi\) in the denominator of 1st fraction ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1now we have to make the denominator common , so we need to multiply and divide by 2\(\pi\) in 2nd fraction to get 4\(\pi\)as common denominator . \(\huge\frac{2x}{4\pi}+\frac{2\pi(1x)}{4\pi}\) now can u solve further ??

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i got up to \[\frac{ xpix }{ 2\pi} = 1/2\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nopes, \(\huge\frac{2x}{4\pi}+\frac{2\pi(1x)}{4\pi}=\frac{2x+2\pi(1x)}{4\pi}=\frac{x+\pi\pi x}{2\pi}\) u can't simplify it further.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i forgot one important thing. the equation is equal to zero. and i'm solving for x

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1okay, so it will be \(\huge x+\pi\pi x=0 \implies x(1\pi)=\pi \\\huge x=\frac{\pi}{1\pi}or\frac{\pi}{\pi1}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so was my step right so far?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1u got 1/2, but its actually, pi/(pi1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1equal to zero? my teacher did the same thing as me.. but i didn't write the last part leading towards the answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i crossed multiply \[\frac{ 4x }{ 8\pi } + \frac{ 4\pi  4pix }{ 8\pi } = 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i split the equation up also

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the i got \[\frac{ x }{ 2\pi }  \frac{ \pi }{ 2\pi } = 1/2 \]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1the \[\frac{ \pi }{ 2 reduces to 1/2 and i brought it over...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1but u cannot cancel pi, the first term had x in it, not pi.

swin2013

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes... and i'm solving for it. i haven't found the answer further than that step

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1what are you talking about cancel? i didn't cancel anything other than the pis... which was pi/2pi... they're in common? this part i know for sure is right. i don't know how to get after that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1how did u get 1/2 ...and where did your 8 go from denominator ?

swin2013

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1that was a typo. and i reduced \[\frac{ \pi }{ 2\pi } \] to get 1/2 and then i subtracted it on both sides so the equation is equal to 1/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i'm basically trying to isolate the x as much as possible

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\huge \frac{ 4x }{ 8\pi } + \frac{ 4\pi  4\pi x }{ 8\pi } = 0\) u had this correct. then u separated denominator u should get, \(\large \frac{x}{2\pi}+\frac{1}{2}\frac{x}{2}=0\) but this is not the best way to isolate x.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yea, but it's easier for me to visualize it. instead of clutter i wanted to separate the fractions

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1ok, so continuing with separating the fraction, you can cancel all the 2's in the denominator(equivalent to multiplying 2 on both sides.) then shifting +1to other side, u get \(\large x(\frac{1}{\pi}1)=1\) which again gives, \(\large x=\frac{1}{1/\pi1}=\frac{\pi}{\pi1}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i multiply the top and bottom by 2pi to get rid of it in the denominator?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes, u can do that also, that will lead to same answer.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1as i said, i multiplied both sides by 2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 2x }{ 4\pi }+ \frac{ 1x }{ 2 }\] is not an equation. there is nothing to "solve" for you can add however, by finding the lcd is \(4\pi \) and adding

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you would get \[\frac{2x+2(1x)}{4\pi}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1i got x = \[\frac{ \pi }{ 1\pi }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1 pi / 1pi = pi / 1+pi

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1there must be slight error in minus sign, its pi/(pi1)

swin2013

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1no, i subtracted 1/2 from both sides and it was 1/2

swin2013

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then i multiplied both sides by 2pi which made it pi.

swin2013

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1so i got \[x  pix = pi\]

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1both those steps are correct. u get x(1pi)=pi x=pi/(1pi) = pi/(pi1)

swin2013

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1then i factored out the x. \[x(1\pi) = \pi \] \[x = \frac{ \pi }{ 1\pi } \]

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1yes so its pi/(1pi) which is same as pi/(pi1)

swin2013

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1are you sure? if you take out the negative, wouldn't the denominator be 1+ pi?

hartnn

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1nopes it would not be 1+pi. it will be pi1 (1pi) = pi1 yes, sure.
