## Stephhaniiee 2 years ago Solve for x: x + 16 / 3 = 3x

1. lexiamee

What Do You Think Is First? Divide?

2. mayankdevnani

-2x=-16/3 x=16/3*2

3. mayankdevnani

can you solve it

4. gerryliyana

x + 16 / 3 = 3x -2x = 16/3 x = -16/6

5. surdawi

x + 16 / 3 = 3x -x -x 16/3=2x /2 /2 8/3=x

@gerryliyana warning! don't give direct answers

7. farmdawgnation

@Stephhaniiee Then allow the people here to help you get better. That's what we're here for. We don't want to do your homework for you. Yahoo! Answers can do that. We want to teach you. Let the people on this site do that.

14. gerryliyana

i am sorry ...,

15. surdawi

so who agrees that the answer is 8/3=x

16. gerryliyana

i am

17. gerryliyana

i am agreed

18. farmdawgnation

Is the problem $$x + \frac{16}{3}$$ or $$\frac{x + 16}{3}$$?

19. farmdawgnation

Sorry, left off the RHS there. heh.

20. farmdawgnation
