1. gaara438125 Group Title

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

2. emarrero22 Group Title

x/5

3. gaara438125 Group Title

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

4. emarrero22 Group Title

so it would be 50/5?

5. gaara438125 Group Title

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

6. gaara438125 Group Title

cross cancel on the left side to get what?

2/5

9. gaara438125 Group Title

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
