@rhr12 it'd e great if you could help

- rhr12

Okay. Hold on

Thanks :)

\[6-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }x+\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+5\]\[6\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }x=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x+5\]\[1\frac{ 1 }{ 3 }-\frac{ 3 }{ 4 }x=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }x\]\[2\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }-\frac{ 6 }{ 4 }x=x\]\[2\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }=\frac{ 10 }{ 4 }x\]\[\frac{ 8 }{ 3 } = \frac{ 10 }{ 4 }x\]\[8=\frac{ 30 }{ 4 }x\]\[32=30x\]

but this answer ain't one of the options

- rhr12

I got 16/3

- anonymous

Thanks for the help! but yes it's not there... I just re-read it. The question wants to know which number can each term of the equation be multiplied by to eliminate the fractions before actually solving it.

- anonymous

wait i made a typo in the working...

- anonymous

Sorry for the mistake, do you know the answer?

- rhr12

Is it (6-3)/x +1/3 = 1/2x+5?

- rhr12

Or 6-(3/x)?

- anonymous

The answer? Its one of these:
a.2
b.3
c.6
d.12

- rhr12

Which one?

- anonymous

No idea, I should know but.... I don't :(

- anonymous

plug in every option and try :)

- anonymous

Ya, I guess I will...Thanks guys! :)

- rhr12

The problem is braces. U didn't indicate where it is. That is so confusing

- anonymous

Let me send you the whole question

- anonymous

Which number can each term of the equation be multiplied by to eliminate the fractions before solving?
6 – 3/4 x + 1/3 = 1/2 x + 5
a.2
b.3
c.6
d.12

- anonymous

d

- anonymous

its asking what of this number you can multiply on both sides and not get any fractions

- rhr12

D is not correct i guess

- anonymous

@saseal It's fine, but thanks! @rhr12 Thank you for trying :)

- rhr12

Do u get the correct answer?

- rhr12

I think it's 3

- anonymous

Hopefully, I'll let you know. Sucks because they don't let you know (the program I am in) it just goes toward your grade.

- anonymous

i wish my school does this kind of test

- rhr12

Aight don't choose three. Take your own guess and best of luck. I took online geo final yesterday and i took guess for more than 30 questions but i get 81. But i don't know how. There were 51 questions. Believe yourself and take ur guess. 😝

- anonymous

@saseal great online class but long videos, guess I should put more attention :(
@rhr12 Thanks a lot I really appreciate the help, ya guessung comes in handy

- anonymous

*guessing

- anonymous

i usually take online classes from edx but they are at calculus and above level. the reason why i tell you 12 is theres 3 fractions in this equation , 3/4, 1/3, 1/2. only 12 is the LCM of this 3 denominator

- anonymous

Calculus, that's great! I bet you like Math

- anonymous

nah, but its a requirement in my civil engineering course

- anonymous

College? University?

- anonymous

a Pre-Uni tech school

- anonymous

we can skip the 1st year of civil engineering in a local uni in my country and continue to degree with their diploma

- anonymous

Awesome, sounds great. Less is better, I am assuming it will get you there sooner?

- anonymous

Obviously... :)

- anonymous

its 1 year longer than college to uni but less stressful and you get to actually use what you learned

- anonymous

its more fun

- anonymous

our college is 2 years and tech school is 3 years

- rhr12

@saseal what state u r in?

- anonymous

Not that bad, 1 more year makes a great difference. You could spend that year doing other things but instead using it there is best. And like you said things you will use and it's fun... it's worth your time :)

- anonymous

singapore, asia

- anonymous

Very cool!

- rhr12

I'm kinda asian. I mean my parents are from south asia

- rhr12

- anonymous
