@lesliee23 how far did you get with solving this one?

  • anonymous
don't we need a common denominator

@Hero Typo? You did a - instead of +

\[\dfrac{1}{3}x + \dfrac{1}{4} = -5\] @lesliee23 Do you know the common denominator?

12

Yes, basically one, approach for solving this is to multiply both sides by the common denominator, which, in this case is 12.

\[(12)\dfrac{1}{3}x + (12)\dfrac{1}{4} = (12)-5\] @lesliee23, What do you think we should do next?

Okay, so now we have 4x + 3 = (12)(-5). Do you think you could finish it from here?
