the sum equivalent to what?
pujan20
  • pujan20
the expression.
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
what are your answer choices?
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
if any?
pujan20
  • pujan20
no choices. like my alg. 1 teacher is seeing our progress, but its 20% smh
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
does the expression look like this? \[\frac{ 3x+2 }{ 8 }\]
pujan20
  • pujan20
yep sorry, I'm used to typing equations on mathway
pujan20
  • pujan20
doesn't say. the question is what sum or difference is equivalent to the expression
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
that doesn't make sense?
pujan20
  • pujan20
ik. I'm usually good at algebra
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
same it's my favorite subject
anonymous
  • anonymous
I think this might be asking you to split this into 2 fractions
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
I was thinking the same but the wording is off
pujan20
  • pujan20
i think its
Theloshua
  • Theloshua
no, haham this is easy. theyre asking you to solve for x
pujan20
  • pujan20
\[ \frac{ 5x }{ 8 }\]
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
you can't solve there is no equal sign
Theloshua
  • Theloshua
no, you cannot add the 2 to the 3x because they are different variables
pujan20
  • pujan20
ohh
anonymous
  • anonymous
no. 3x and 2 aren't like terms, so they can't be combined \[\frac{ 3x+2 }{ 8 }=\frac{ 3x }{ 8 }+\frac{ 2 }{ 8 }\] then reduce 2/8
Theloshua
  • Theloshua
and yes, you can solve for it :)
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
how?
pujan20
  • pujan20
but I'm supposed to find the equivalent sum
pujan20
  • pujan20
instead of solving it itself
Theloshua
  • Theloshua
hold on, let me think. Im trying to figure it out. im pretty sure this has to do with multiplying the fraction
anonymous
  • anonymous
3x/8 + 2/8 is an equivalent sum to (3x + 2)/8
pujan20
  • pujan20
omg how didn't i realize that!
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
yes peachpi is right now you just have to reduce the 2/8
pujan20
  • pujan20
into 1/4
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
yes
pujan20
  • pujan20
thx, but i have 1 more problem like this
pujan20
  • pujan20
can u help
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
I can try?
pujan20
  • pujan20
\[\frac{ 3x-2 }{ 9}\]
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
k so split it into two again
pujan20
  • pujan20
so 3x/9 - 2/9?
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
yes but the 3x/9 can reduce... I think @peachpi
anonymous
  • anonymous
yes it does reduce
pujan20
  • pujan20
into 1x/3 maybe
laughoutloud
  • laughoutloud
yes
pujan20
  • pujan20
omg thx so much!
pujan20
  • pujan20
u all deserve best response ^v^
