## RicardoL 3 years ago Solve the given equation,rational equations. 29=(3/s)+12

1. pratu043

$29 = \frac{ 3 }{ s } + 12$ Bring 12 to the other side. $29 - 12 = \frac{ 3 }{ s } => 17 = \frac{ 3 }{ s }$

29s=129 s=4.4

4. pratu043

Your method is also correct. Using mine, you get: 17s = 3 Now its quite simple right?

@RicardoL

6. pratu043

@mayankdevnani how did you get 129?

7. ajprincess

am really sorry abt bad drawing. Thanx a lot for pointing it out @pratu043

8. mayankdevnani

by adding the sum of 125+3=128 @pratu043 sry

9. pratu043

Its not 125, its 12s. The s looks like 5 in the drawing.

10. RicardoL

did any of you get 0.18 as the answer?

11. pratu043

Yep I did, 0.18 is right.

i wil better delete my reply.:)

$\Huge{\frac{3}{s}+12=29}$$\Huge{\frac{3}{s}=29-12}$$\Huge{\frac{3}{s}=17}$$\Huge{s=\frac{3}{17}}$

14. RicardoL

the answer should be 0.18 i believe.
