Actually I think I just solved the whole thing lol, I came up with u equals 0.25?
mattyboyy
  • mattyboyy
|dw:1435013034777:dw| that what you should have. You just multiple the 9 across the perenthesis

lol lets see idk yet either

add common numbers so 9u + 1.5u = 10.5u
anonymous
  • anonymous
And now solve for u?
mattyboyy
  • mattyboyy
actual subtract 1.5u from 9u
mattyboyy
  • mattyboyy
so it would be 7.5u
mattyboyy
  • mattyboyy
so the equation now should be 7.5u +18 = 8.25
mattyboyy
  • mattyboyy
now subtract 18 from 8.25

we need to add 1.5 to 9 I believe so that gives us 10.5
anonymous
