## anonymous one year ago Solve the equation 2/7=6x/4x+17. The solution of the equation is?

1. Astrophysics

Is this your question $\frac{ 2 }{ 7 } = \frac{ 6 }{ 4 }x+17$

2. Astrophysics

Or is it $\frac{ 2 }{ 7 } = \frac{ 6x }{ 4x+17 }$

3. anonymous

the second one

4. Astrophysics

Ok well, all you have to do is cross multiply, do you know how?

5. anonymous

no

6. Astrophysics

|dw:1436319881292:dw| now simplify and solve for x

7. Astrophysics

You'll have to distribute on the left

8. anonymous

the solution i got is 1? is that correct

9. Astrophysics

Well Idk, tell me what I would do next?

10. anonymous

How would getting the answer help you on a test...I have no interest in giving you the answer, if you're not interested in the process then I have no interest in helping. Take care, and good luck!
