Hmmm...this is a dumb question, but to get rid of a fraction in an equation, do you multiply everything by the denominator of the fraction, or the reciprocal?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1So I have \(x^27x\frac{3}{4}=0\), and to get rid of that fraction I'd multiply everything} by \(\frac{4}{3}\)?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1wait...you said reciprocal of the denominator... so 1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0:3 x^27x\frac{ 3 }{ 4} \times \frac{1}{4} \[x^27x\frac{ 3 }{ 4} \times \frac{1}{4} \] don't see any points to get more messy stuff :P

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\(\bf x^27x\frac{3}{4}=0\implies 4\left( x^27x\frac{3}{4} \right)=4(0) \\ \quad \\ 4x^221x\cancel{4}\cdot \cfrac{3}{\cancel{4}}=0\implies 4x^221x3=0\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1to get rid of a fraction in an equation, do you multiply everything by the denominator of the fraction, or the reciprocal? you multiply everything by the lowest common denominator

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0hmmm rather \(\bf x^27x\frac{3}{4}=0\implies 4\left( x^27x\frac{3}{4} \right)=4(0) \\ \quad \\ 4x^228x\cancel{4}\cdot \cfrac{3}{\cancel{4}}=0\implies 4x^228x3=0\)
