Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3yes right \[\huge\rm \frac{ 3(x+6)+2(x+2) }{ 6 }=9\] multiply the numerator of first fraction by the denominator of 2nd fraction multiply the numerator of 2nd fraction by the denominator of 1st fraction 1st) multiply both sides by 6 2nd) distribute parentheses by outside number
