Amanda tells you that because a variable is in the denominator, the equation three over x plus one over three equals five over six becomes unsolvable. Amanda explains, "There is a value for x that makes the denominator zero, and you can't divide by zero." Demonstrate to Amanda how the equation is still solvable and explain your reasoning.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0then cross multiply to get 6. then, when you plug it into the original equation, you should know that fractions need to have a common denominator. dw:1438184467863:dw

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0If: \[\frac{ 3 }{ x } + \frac{ 1 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 5 }{ 6 }\] Then: \[\frac{ 5 }{ 6 }  \frac{ 1 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 3 }{ x }\] And \[\frac{ 5 }{ 6 } \frac{ 1 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 3 }{ 6 }\] Therefore: \[x = 3\]
