I'm not sure but I think you would do the inverses, like when you work out any other equation to find x.

2. srw1496 Group Title

Is this what the equation looks like? $(x+3)\div6=\frac{ 5 }{ 4 }$

3. themonkey Group Title

yeah

4. srw1496 Group Title

Okay then you would multiply both sides by 6, right?

5. themonkey Group Title

I guess these are the answer choices it gives me 9/2 9/8 27/4

6. srw1496 Group Title

it's 9/2

7. themonkey Group Title
