    i posted this in the other than, does it look like this? \[\frac{ x + 5 }{ 3 } = \frac{ x - 3 }{ 4 }\]

    ok so the Least common denominator of 3 and 4 is 12 so you have to multiply \[\frac{ x + 5 }{ 3 } * \frac{ 4 }{ 4 }\]

    no \[\frac{ 4x + 20}{12}\] but i see where you could have done the 20x

    so the other side then becomes\[\frac{ 3x - 9 }{ 12 }\] because we do \[\frac{ x - 3 }{ 4 } * \frac{ 3 }{ 3 }\] so it looks like \[\frac{ 4x + 20 }{ 12 } = \frac{ 3x - 9 }{ 12 }\]

    multiply both sides by 12 to get what?

    since both sides are being divided by 12 you can multiply BOTH sides to rid of the fraction leaving only \[4x + 20 = 3x - 9\]
