Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh right lol, sorry im like so out of it when it comes to math Its x=4/5 x + 4/3 = 2x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok lets multiply by 3 on both sides to remove the denominator on the 4/3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2"you can't add the variables and the constants together " leave it as 2.4x + 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so we now have \[0.4x + 4 = 0\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so that would be the final answer?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2ick decimals... I would multiply the whole equation by 10 and then solve for x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2decimals are evil. we use multiplication to modify the equation and make life easier.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Um...so the answer is..0.4x + 4 = 0 also, goat...wtf...

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2so first we multiply the entire equation by 10 because dealing with decimals (especially by hand) is torture 0.4x + 4 = 0 (10)(0.4x)+4(10)=0(10) 4x+40=0 now we need x by itself. We don't want that 40 on the left side, so subtract 40 on both sides finally divide both sides by 4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[4x + 40 =0\]\[x + 10 10 = 0  10\]
