2. MathLegend

3/2x = 20

3. FaithIsASiren_OhKellin?

Oh so you do the same, ok. then what?

4. luxiliu

multiply by 2/3 on both sides

5. MathLegend

Get rid of the fraction by multiplying the denominator by 2 and 20 by 2

6. MathLegend

Then divide by 3

7. luxiliu

just multiply both sides by 2/3 because 2/3*3/2 is one, it will be cancelled and you will just have x on one side

8. FaithIsASiren_OhKellin?

I'm so confused. so multiply that and get 1 which is cancelled and then what?

9. MathLegend

3/2x = 20

10. MathLegend

Multiply 3/2 times 2 and 20 times 2

11. MathLegend

3x = 40

12. MathLegend

@FaithIsASiren_OhKellin? do you understand that?

13. MathLegend

When I multiplied the fraction by 2 it canceled out the denominator.
