Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1I think you mean though 2/(x+4)=4/(x+3) which is: \[\frac{2}{x+4}=\frac{4}{x+3}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1if so multiply both sides by (x+3) and (x+4) you should wind up with 2(x+3)=4(x+4)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.12x6=4x+16 add 2x on both sides 6=6x+16 subtract 16 on both sides 22=6x divide both sides by 6 22/6=x reduce 22=2(11) and 6=2(3) so yes x=11/3
