## bridgetolivares 2 years ago Simplify 4x/9+(x-10)/9

1. bridgetolivares

$\frac{ 4x }{ 9 }+\frac{ x-10 }{ 9 }$

2. 03225186213

4x+x-10=9 5x-10=9 5x=19 x=19/5

3. bridgetolivares

could you explain to me what you did, if you dont mind.

4. 03225186213

steps by taking lcm multipling both sides by 9 adding 10 to both sides dividing both sides by 5

$\frac{ 4x }{ 9 }+\frac{ x-10 }{ 9 }=\frac{ 4x+x-10 }{ 9 }=\frac{ 5x-10 }{ 9 }$
