How to solve for 3 over 4 * x + 4 = 10 ?
3/4(x+4)=10 is this the problem?
1.) Subtract 4 from 10
Take -6 and divide it by 3/4x and wat do u get.....
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. :)
its okay it happens to the best of us lol
Yup, I guess it does :) Mistakes happen... :)
