the sum equivalent to what?

- pujan20

the expression.

- laughoutloud

what are your answer choices?

- laughoutloud

if any?

- pujan20

no choices.
like my alg. 1 teacher is seeing our progress, but its 20%
smh

- laughoutloud

does the expression look like this? \[\frac{ 3x+2 }{ 8 }\]

- pujan20

yep
sorry, I'm used to typing equations on mathway

- pujan20

doesn't say. the question is what sum or difference is equivalent to the expression

- laughoutloud

that doesn't make sense?

- pujan20

ik. I'm usually good at algebra

- laughoutloud

same it's my favorite subject

- anonymous

I think this might be asking you to split this into 2 fractions

- laughoutloud

I was thinking the same but the wording is off

- pujan20

i think its

- Theloshua

no, haham this is easy. theyre asking you to solve for x

- pujan20

\[ \frac{ 5x }{ 8 }\]

- laughoutloud

you can't solve there is no equal sign

- Theloshua

no, you cannot add the 2 to the 3x because they are different variables

- pujan20

ohh

- 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

and yes, you can solve for it :)

- laughoutloud

how?

- pujan20

but I'm supposed to find the equivalent sum

- pujan20

instead of solving it itself

- Theloshua

hold on, let me think. Im trying to figure it out. im pretty sure this has to do with multiplying the fraction

- anonymous

3x/8 + 2/8 is an equivalent sum to (3x + 2)/8

- pujan20

omg how didn't i realize that!

- laughoutloud

yes peachpi is right now you just have to reduce the 2/8

- pujan20

into 1/4

- laughoutloud

yes

- pujan20

thx, but i have 1 more problem like this

- pujan20

can u help

- laughoutloud

I can try?

- pujan20

\[\frac{ 3x-2 }{ 9}\]

- laughoutloud

k so split it into two again

- pujan20

so 3x/9 - 2/9?

- laughoutloud

yes but the 3x/9 can reduce... I think @peachpi

- anonymous

yes it does reduce

- pujan20

into 1x/3
maybe

- laughoutloud

yes

- pujan20

omg thx so much!

- pujan20

u all deserve best response ^v^

- laughoutloud

your welcome
