Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2bring p to 1side of the equation and solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2hint: subtract 2/3p from both side of the equation

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so we have 6=7/6p2/3p

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hint: multiply both sides by "p"

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if we follow what @lynfran stated we can arrive at the answer

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{ 2 }{ 3p }+6=\frac{ 7 }{ 6p }\]\[6=\frac{ 7 }{ 6p }\frac{ 2 }{ 3p }\]\[6=\frac{ 74 }{ 6p }\]\[6=\frac{ 3 }{ 6p }\]\[6=\frac{ 1 }{ 2p }\]multiply both side by 2p we get \[2p*6=1\]\...solve for p..

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@LynFran woudnt it be like this? \[\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }p+6=\frac{ 7 }{ 6 }\] \[6=\frac{ 7 }{ 6 }p\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }p\] (you subtract 7/6  2/3 and get 1/2 ) \[6=\frac{ 1 }{ 2 }p\] \[p=?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no... then u will have p = 12 thats not the answer...lol

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2continue frm where i left off 2p*6=1 12p=1 divide both sides by 12 to get the value of p...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but that would not check out right. you would get, if you plug in 1/12 in for p, 109/18 = 7/72. wheras if you plug in 12 (the answer that i got ) you would get 14 = 14 clearly checking out.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{ 7 }{ 6(\frac{ 1 }{ 12 }) }=?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok idk how you did that

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but then woudnt that mean that im also right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0couse idk what i did wrong

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ok lets check...\[\frac{ 2 }{ 3(12) }+6=?\]\[\frac{ 7 }{ 6(12) }=?\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2u was suppose to find a common denominator \[\frac{ 7 }{ 6p }\frac{ 2 }{ 3p }\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0wasnt the question \[\frac{ 2 }{ 3 }P+6=\frac{ 7 }{ 6 }P\] but you solved for \[\frac{ 2 }{ 3P }+6=\frac{ 7 }{ 6p }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0isnt there a differance?

LynFran

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so \[\frac{ (7*1)(2*2) }{ 6p }\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[\frac{ 1 }{ 2p }\]

LynFran

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2and remember p" is in the denominator so we multiply by 2p to both sides of equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0but in the original problem how do we know that the p was on the denominator?

LynFran

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2well it looked so to me lol...could be wrong then...

LynFran

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2if its not then ur right..
