i cant cause im really busy and this is due tomorrow morning
isnt there something we can work out
can we finish this at 3:30
Well then, your mom's going to have to wait
lol yeah
ok lets start
Okay. I'll try and make this quick. But this is not how it should be done, okay? haha
okay
Suffice it to say, Fred only has 3/8 of John's money. We're looking for how much John originally had.
yes
So. John's original amount is x Fred's is 3/8 x
yes
Now if John gives Fred 6, his amount will become x - 6 because he loses 6, right? What happens to Fred's money?
he will gain 6
so his amount becomes...?
9
no. Where did you get that? haha His amount was originally 3/8 x so you just add 6 to that
6 3/8
\[\Large \frac38x + 6\] more like :P
So John's new amount is x - 6 and that thing up there ^ is Fred's new amount Apparently, with these new amounts, John has twice Fred's money. So, in equations, that'd be \[\Large x - 6 = 2\left[\frac38x + 6\right]\]
Now solve for x as you did last time
thats really confusing like last time lol
It's just the fraction. But actually, you just distribute the 2 to the two terms inside the [] much like you did with the 6 earlier.
x-6=6/8+12
is that correct
It is. You can multiply everything by 8 to get rid of that denominator.
And again, you missed a spot. x's don't just disappear XD
\[\Large x - 6 = 2\left[\frac38\color{red}x + 6\right]\]
i still don't get it can you just tell me what x is
please friend
friends are suppose to help friends
I have a name, you know LOL
please help me terence
what is x suppose to be
lol that's just an alias I've been using. I'll multiply by 8, you do the rest. You CAN do it, because you did it before lol 8x - 48 = 6x + 96 Now solve it.
plus 48 to both sides
???????????
Yup. You get...?
or minus 96 to both sides
Better to add 48 to both sides.
8x=6x+144
??
good. Next?
-6x to both sides
Okay. And you get...?
2x=144 which x equals 72 yes
!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
And that's the answer. See? You CAN do it. You don't need me to tell you the answer haha
lol
do you want your reward
new medal? haha sure ^_^
