    \[3=\frac{ 175 }{ 3 }x + -55 \frac{ 175 }{ 3 }\]

    Start by multiplying 55 and 175 together 3 = 175/3x - 9625/3 Add the fractions over a common denominator as a single fraction 175/3x - 9625 /3 = (175x - 9625) / (3) Multiply both sides by a constant (3) 175x - 9625 = 9 Can you solve from here?

    My answer was x = 55, is that correct?
