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

so the lcd is obviously 12 which gets us?

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

i mean the solution @gaara438125

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?

gaara438125Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0
since both sides are being divided by 12 you can multiply BOTH sides to rid of the fraction leaving only \[4x + 20 = 3x  9\]
