Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\[\frac{ 2 }{ 5 } (4x+6) = 2 (23x) + 6\] multiply \(5\) through out and get \[2 (4x+6) = 10 (23x) + 30\] distributing \[8x+12 = 2030x + 30\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Wait. So once I multiply I don't put it back as a fraction like: \[\frac{ 8 }{ 5 } x + \frac{ 12 }{ 5 }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1we have \[\frac{ 2 }{ 5 } (4x+6) = 2 (23x) + 6\] multiplying \(5\) through out gives \[\color{red}{5}*\frac{ 2 }{ 5 } (4x+6) = \color{red}{5*}2 (23x) + \color{red}{5*}6\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the idea is multiply both sides by 5 (which is OK to do) and on the left, the 5/5 cancel. and no more fraction

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0btw, you should continue to simplify until you get x= some number.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1one key thing about math in general is  follow the rules and all your methods will produce the same answer in the end and ofcourse there always exists the best way to do any problem :)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, that's what I was doing. I was taught some other way like finding LCD which drives me insane!!! I always want to die when I see finding LCD. It's a killer! Oh yes! That's why I always ask you, because you always have some way that I do not know!!;))
