\[\dfrac34(x-12)=12\]
We need to isolate x. Any idea what to do with \(\dfrac34\)?

- anonymous

convert it to a decimal?

- geerky42

Sure. Then we have \(.75(x-12) = 12\)
We still need to get rid of .75

Maybe do something to both sides to cancel .75 out?

- anonymous

subtract .75 from .75 and 12?

- geerky42

I would go with dividing.

- geerky42

\(\dfrac{.75(x-12)}{.75} = \dfrac{12}{.75}\)
\(\dfrac{\cancel{.75}(x-12)}{\cancel{.75}} = \dfrac{12}{.75}\)
\(x-12 = \dfrac{12}{.75}\)

okk

- geerky42

Do you understand what is going on?

- anonymous

yes so 12 divided by .75 is 16?

- anonymous

so then 12/.75 is equal; to 9, |dw:1435197556041:dw|

- anonymous

okk so x=28? 28-12=16 witch is 16=16? right

- anonymous

yes that right :)

- anonymous

yay thank u guys!!!!! :-)

- anonymous

now equation 2 I need help also

- anonymous

do I do the same thing as I did the first time?

- anonymous

no its then 3/4Y-12 = 12 you add 12 to both sides and its 3/4Y = 24 you divide btoh sides by 3/4 and its Y = 32

- anonymous

its a lot to chew so if you get stuck ill help you with each part

- anonymous

yea I'm a little confused can u explain please

- anonymous

its not addition its multiplication so its (.75*Y) - 12 = 12

- anonymous

but u said add 12 to both sides

- anonymous

i really like using fractions but ill convert it to decimals lets start over just forget what i said

- anonymous

okk
