Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Yes, basically one, approach for solving this is to multiply both sides by the common denominator, which, in this case is 12.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Okay, so now we have 4x + 3 = (12)(5). Do you think you could finish it from here?
