Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Suffice it to say, Fred only has 3/8 of John's money. We're looking for how much John originally had.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So. John's original amount is x Fred's is 3/8 x

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now if John gives Fred 6, his amount will become x  6 because he loses 6, right? What happens to Fred's money?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so his amount becomes...?

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2no. Where did you get that? haha His amount was originally 3/8 x so you just add 6 to that

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large \frac38x + 6\] more like :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2So 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 \[\Large x  6 = 2\left[\frac38x + 6\right]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Now solve for x as you did last time

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It'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.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2It is. You can multiply everything by 8 to get rid of that denominator.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2And again, you missed a spot. x's don't just disappear XD

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\Large x  6 = 2\left[\frac38\color{red}x + 6\right]\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what is x suppose to be

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2lol 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.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0plus 48 to both sides

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0or minus 96 to both sides

terenzreignz

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Better to add 48 to both sides.
