Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0i posted this in the other than, does it look like this? \[\frac{ x + 5 }{ 3 } = \frac{ x  3 }{ 4 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the lcd is obviously 12 which gets us?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok so the Least common denominator of 3 and 4 is 12 so you have to multiply \[\frac{ x + 5 }{ 3 } * \frac{ 4 }{ 4 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0no \[\frac{ 4x + 20}{12}\] but i see where you could have done the 20x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the other side then becomes\[\frac{ 3x  9 }{ 12 }\] because we do \[\frac{ x  3 }{ 4 } * \frac{ 3 }{ 3 }\] so it looks like \[\frac{ 4x + 20 }{ 12 } = \frac{ 3x  9 }{ 12 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiply both sides by 12 to get what?

gaara438125

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0since both sides are being divided by 12 you can multiply BOTH sides to rid of the fraction leaving only \[4x + 20 = 3x  9\]
