## emarrero22 x.5 - 1=9 what does x=? one year ago one year ago

1. gaara438125

is that x * 5? or x + 5 or x - 5 or x/5?

2. emarrero22

x/5

3. gaara438125

x/5 - 1 = 9 add one to each side x/5 = 10 then multiply each side by 5

4. emarrero22

so it would be 50/5?

5. gaara438125

$\frac{ x }{ 5 } * \frac{ 5 }{ 1 } = 10 * 5$

6. gaara438125

cross cancel on the left side to get what?

7. emarrero22

2/5

9. gaara438125

on the left side since we're multiply we can cross cancel the two 5's for one is the denominator and the other is the numerator. once we cross cancel they become 1 so x/1 also equals x
