Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1EQUATions "equate" to something so... you don't really have to "solve" anything per se

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@jdoe0001 is saying that in order to solve for \(x\) we need an equals sign. You just gave an expression, not an equation.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1\(\bf \cfrac{x}{3}+\cfrac{2}{5}\implies \cfrac{}{LCD=15}\implies \cfrac{(15\div 3)x+(15\div5)2}{15}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\dfrac{x}{3}+\dfrac{2}{5}=\dfrac{5x}{5*3}+\dfrac{2*3}{5*3}=\dfrac{5x+6}{15}\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\[\frac{2t}{8xy}+\dfrac{4tx}{10y}\] We want the denominator to be the same, lcm(8,10)=40 and we are missing an x on the right side \[\dfrac{5*2*t}{4*x*y}+\dfrac{4*4*t*x}{4*10*y*x}\]
