Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0To solve for the x amt. of honey when using 3 eggs, you have to multiply both sides of the equation by 3 and then simplify.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0haha ok, so we just cross multiplied then? 3/4 times 3 and x times 3 is 2x = 9/4 and then 9/4 divded by 2 is 9/8 right?
