next step is to subtract 3x from both sides
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[27x=3x+5\] then \[24x=5\]
welshfella
  • welshfella
correct
welshfella
  • welshfella
now you isolate x
welshfella
  • welshfella
by a division

I got 4.8?
welshfella
  • welshfella
24x /24 = 5/24 x = 5/24
welshfella
  • welshfella
you divide both sides by 24
anonymous
  • anonymous
yeah i still get 4.8
anonymous
  • anonymous
\[24x=5\] \[24x/24=5/24\]
welshfella
  • welshfella
thats right - but it looks like you have divided 24 by 5 rather than 5 by 24
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh so then that way i got 0.208
welshfella
  • welshfella
yes thats right
anonymous
  • anonymous
so what would that be in fraction form?
welshfella
  • welshfella
5/24

the first fraction is 3/ (2x + 5) not 3/(3x + 5)
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh Im so sorry :(
welshfella
  • welshfella
thats ok so we have 27x = 2x + 5 25x = 5 x = 5/15
welshfella
  • welshfella
* x = 5/25 = 1/5
anonymous
  • anonymous
And that reduces to....???
welshfella
  • welshfella
5/25 = 1/5
welshfella
  • welshfella
or 0.2
anonymous
  • anonymous
Oh thank you so much :D
