## Annetta_Martin 2 years ago How to solve for 3 over 4 * x + 4 = 10 ?

1. CynthiaJune94

3/4(x+4)=10 is this the problem?

1.) Subtract 4 from 10

4. e.cociuba

You will get wat??

5. Annetta_Martin

-6

6. e.cociuba

Take -6 and divide it by 3/4x and wat do u get.....

7. e.cociuba

You get x= -4.5

3/4x + 4 = 10 subtract 4 from both sides 3/4x = 6 |dw:1363805836196:dw|

The question is: (3/4)x + 4 = 10 (where / means division) You want to isolate for x by essientially doing bedmas/pedmas in reverse. Subtract 4 from both sides: (3/4)x + 4 - 4 = 10 - 4 (3/4)x = 6 Divide both sides by (3/4): (3/4)x/(3/4) = 6/(3/4) x = 6/(3/4) Recall that dividing by a faction is the same as multiplying by the reciprocal fraction(ie flipped fraction) : x = 6 * (4/3) Multiply numerator with numerator and denominator with denominator: x = (6/1) * (4/3) x = (6 * 4)/(1 * 3) x = 24/3 x = 8

it was a positive 10 minus a positive 4 10-4=6

U do get 8. Oops I divided by -6. Srry @Annetta_Martin

Srry @CynthiaJune94 Thanks for the correction. :)
