-3

ok so now you have \(\dfrac{4}{x-3}=-3\)
anonymous
  • anonymous
you get that.
anonymous
  • anonymous
then add 3
anonymous
  • anonymous
so then the 3's crosss out?
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
no, what u need to do next is to multiply by (x-3) on both the left and right hand side of \[\frac{ 4 }{ x-3 }=-3\] so that the bottom part will cross out.
anonymous
  • anonymous
and you get 4/x
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
Not really...on the left hand side... \[\frac{ 4 }{ x-3 }\times \frac{ x-3 }{ x-3 }\] what will u get?
anonymous
  • anonymous
once you multiply the (x-3) over you end up with 4=(-3)(x--3), right?
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes.
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
@atreyu6s3x6 that is correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
so wouldnt the right side cancel?
anonymous
  • anonymous
alright well then distribute the -3 through the equation and no not yet
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
no, there is nothing to cancel on the right: 4=-3(x-3) u need to distribute -3 to (x-3) and then simplify...
anonymous
  • anonymous
@sdfgsdfgs correct
anonymous
  • anonymous
okay so 4= 3x+9
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
almost but it should be 4=-3x+9...
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes.. so then you simply move the 9 over to the other side
anonymous
  • anonymous
xo you get -5/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
almost but it will be a n egative
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
no again :( 4=-3x+9 -9 on both left and right....
anonymous
  • anonymous
negative* sorry
anonymous
  • anonymous
you subtract 9 on both sides. so 4-9=-5
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
and then divide by -3 on left n right, u get....
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes. then divide by -3
anonymous
  • anonymous
in which you end up with?
anonymous
  • anonymous
5/3?
anonymous
  • anonymous
the negative does not cancel. so it is -5/3
anonymous
  • anonymous
because im getting -5/-3 so would it change to positive?
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
5/3 is the correct ans :) good job @chealseaa_grinn
anonymous
  • anonymous
that's what i got before. haha you said it was wrong. xD
anonymous
  • anonymous
oh my bad lol good job you proved me wrong
anonymous
  • anonymous
haha it's okay. thank you both for explaining. i'm so slow with math. >.<
sdfgsdfgs
  • sdfgsdfgs
@chealseaa_grinn u doing fine. getting it slow is better than getting it wrong ;)
anonymous
  • anonymous
but yea your correct..
anonymous
  • anonymous
progress is progress no matter what speed thats all that counts
anonymous
  • anonymous
metal? lol
