This is kind of tricky, you know.

not for that smart brain of yours

lol your funny

i need to hurry cause my mom is rushing me

This isn't something that we can solve in a hurry :>
Maybe you should rest now? :D

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

yes

So. John's original amount is x
Fred's is 3/8 x

yes

he will gain 6

so his amount becomes...?

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

Now solve for x as you did last time

thats really confusing like last time lol

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

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 ^_^
