Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1at least none that i can find. but im pretty sure that @hba's answer is wrong... if you solve: x+5/2x=15 x+5=30x x=30x5 x=0.16666666666666666666666666666667 unless that's an answer choice, idk...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@rhondaycole \[x + \frac{ 5 }{ 2x } = 15\]Multiply by 5.\[x + \frac{ 5 }{ 2x }(5) = 15(5)\]\[x + 2x = 75\]x + 2x = 3x SO: 3x = 75 Divide both sides by 3. x = 25

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@jazy not sure about the equation but you did a mistake at the beginning x + 5/2x = 15 when multiply by 5 it will be 5x + 25/2x = 75

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You would multiply the denominator to get rid of the fraction, not the numerator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0You would want to multiply by 2x to get it out of the denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[x + \frac{ 5 }{ 2x } =15\] \[(2x)*x + (2x)*\frac{ 5 }{ 2x } =(2x)*15\] \[2x^{2} + 5 = 30x\] \[2x^{2} 30 x +5 = 0\] can you try now @jazy
