You have written \(x + \dfrac{6}{3} + x + \dfrac{2}{5} = 1\) Your parentheses are in the wrong place. There is no point to putting parentheses around as single value. (x+6)/3 + (x+2)/5 = 1

Okay, what's preventing you from finding a common denominator and adding the fractions?

I was never sure how you solve it, do you multiply 15 by each part of the equation?
tkhunny
  • tkhunny
That is certainly one way to do it. Good work. You did, indeed, find the least common denominator. Let's see what you get.

\[\frac{ 15x+90 }{ 3 }+\frac{ 15x+30 }{ 5 }=15?\]

  • tkhunny
Oh, no. That will never do. There was a reason we picked 15. It was NOT to make life harder. You should get: 5(x+6) + 3(x+2) = 15 Simplify those denominators. That was the whole point of using 15.
