## SephI 2 years ago Show Steps: y – 31 = -5/24(x – 15) Solve for y

1. hba

@SephI Show me the working and i tell you where you go wrong...........

2. SephI

y - 31 = -5/24(X - 15) y - 31 = -5/24x + (Don't know how to do this part)

@SephI Got It ?

9. SephI

-5/24 * 1/15 -5/24 * -5/15 75/15 5?

10. hba

@SephI What are you doing ?

11. hba

Where did you get 1/15 from ?

12. SephI

15 is equal to 1/15...

13. hba

@SephI How Can 15 =1/15 ? Think How Can 15 be equal to 0.06667

"Multiplying a fraction by an integer follows the same rules as multiplying two fractions. An integer can be considered to be a fraction with a denominator of 1. Therefore when a fraction is multiplied by an integer the numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the integer. The denominator is multiplied by 1 which does not change the denominator."

@SephI It doesn't say anything like this It says that 15=15/1

16. SephI

Ok.. go on

y – 31 = -5/24(x – 15) y-31=(-5x/24)+65/24 y=(-5x/24)+(65/24)+31 take lcm and solve
