To solve, you have to isolate w

3. lovemenplayhard

$w-\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }=\frac{ -19 }{ 9 }$$w=\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }+\frac{ -19 }{ 9 }=\frac{ -19+4 }{ 9 }=\frac{ -15 }{ 9 }=\frac{ -5 }{ 3 }$

4. lovemenplayhard

add 4/9 on each side and take LCM

5. LonelyandForgotten

sorry, that is incorrect.

6. lovemenplayhard

dats correct

7. LonelyandForgotten

how would you write that as a mixed number?

8. LonelyandForgotten

it's not one of the options dummy :P

9. lovemenplayhard

u got options?

10. LonelyandForgotten

yea

11. lovemenplayhard

2 -1/3

12. LonelyandForgotten

13. lovemenplayhard

this is too hard, i give up :(

28. LonelyandForgotten

i think thats a girl.....

29. lovemenplayhard

u gotta add 4/9 both sides

30. lovemenplayhard

$w-\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }=\frac{ -19 }{ 9 }$ den$w-\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }+\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }=\frac{ -19 }{ 9 }+\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }$

31. hedyeh99

I am a girl @lovemenplayhard

32. hedyeh99

I will help :)

33. lovemenplayhard

$w=\frac{ 4 }{ 9 }+\frac{ -19 }{ 9 }=\frac{ 4-19 }{ 9 }=\frac{ -15 }{ 9}=\frac{ -5 }{ 3 }$

34. lovemenplayhard

thanks for letting me knw @hedyeh99
