Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@wolf1728 I don't know how to do this . Do you think you can help me solve it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I made a better graphic of the problem:

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That becomes 1/(5x 75) + 1/(9X +81) = x + 7

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay so can you tell me whats the next step

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3We could multiply both sides by (5x 75) and get 1 + (5x 75) / (9x + 81) = (x +7) * (5x 75)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Thats the answer or is that step 1

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's step 1 I'm guessing you have to solve for x right?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay and yep its solving the equation

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0What's next . Sorry I'm trying to figure out this step

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay Can you tell me if 1/13 is the answer. I think I'm doing it right but I'm not sure

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'm working this out as we speak  I don't have the answer yet. I think I've found a quicker way.

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I am trying to find a way to get rid of the "1" or the (5x75) but something always gets left over

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I have the answers but I need to know the steps on how to get them so I can understand it

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0kaun academy bro that will help u

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I'd say the next step MIGHT be multiplying 5x^2 40x 526 by (9x +81) That would produce a cubic equation equaling (5x 75) which would be difficult to solve. Something should be cancelling here.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes, How'd you get five x squared

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0That's thepart I'm kind of confused by

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Look at the second graphic I posted

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yeah I still don't get it

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's about as far as I can go I could try using Excel to get the answer (which I'm doing right now) but it won't show you the method

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay that's fine take your time.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@wolf1728 Excel is going to be a link too?

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No Excel is just a program for doing calculations and if you know how to program it, you can set it up to do trial and error computations.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0aha what happen nnesha

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so x5 and x9 are not at the denominator \[\frac{ x5 }{ 5} +\frac{ x+9 }{ 9}=x+7\] this is your question right ?

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Aha  that second graphic you posted is different than the other one you posted

Nnesha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0leftside) find common denominator

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Ah sorry wolf but to nnesha its 15 so x15/5

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0what's the common denominator ?

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yes right \[\frac{ 9(x15)+5(x+9) }{ 45 }=x+7\] multiply the numerator of 1st fraction by the denominator of 2nd fraction (9(x15)) multiply the numerator of 2nd fraction with the denominator of 1st fraction (5(x+9) now distribute parentheses by outside number 9(x15) ="?? 5(x+9)=??? after that combine like terms

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh no no you can't add 5 and 9 first you should distribute x15 by 9 distributive property ? a(b+c) = a*b + a*c =ab +ac

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.09(x15) = 9 times x + 9 times 15 = ?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay question. How come you switched I thought it was suppose to be 5(x15)+9(x=9)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0How come it was switched?

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ugh i can't use draw tool >.< well it's like cross multiplication when we find common denominator we should multiply the numerator of `1st` fraction by the denominator of `2nd` fraction dw:1442104883666:dw

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0loll okay I don't 100% understand that but I am gonna go with the flow

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3How about eliminating the denominators and multiply 45 by (x + 7)

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I thought that 45 was the denominators @wolf1728 and how did you get to this other side of the equation

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ah sorry https://www.mathsisfun.com/numbers/commondenominator.html here read this i've to go i hope other users explain this better than meh XD lol good luck! :=)

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.39* (x15) + 5*(x+9) = 45 * (x + 7)

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nooooo stay pls help me finish the problem i get it just not that part @Nnesha

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That help a little HelloGood Morning?

Nnesha
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ye but we still have to multiply 9(x15) + 5(x+9) that's what he didn't understand

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3okay  I'll finish it up if you want me to.

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Okay yeah wolf . and yeah thats the part i didnt understand . Go ahead wolf

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Okay now we have 9* (x15) + 5*(x+9) = 45x + 315

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay where'd you get 315 from

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Multiply 45 * (x + 7) you get 45x + 315 (which is 45*7)

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Okay so now we do a little multiplying 9* (x15) + 5*(x+9) = 45x + 315 that equals 9x 135 can you multiply 5*(x +9)?

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.05*x=5x and 5*9=45 5x+45

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0where'd the 135 come from

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3That's right so we now have 9x 135 + 5x +45 = 45x +315

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3I multiplied 9 *(x 15)

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Now we have to collect the terms in this: 9x 135 + 5x +45 = 45x +315

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So, we have 14x 135 + 45 = 45x + 315

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0yeah so 45x14x =31x

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Very good so we now have 135 + 45 = 31x + 315

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3There's more to do though

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0lol yeah sorry i was celebrating

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3No not quite yet. 90 = 31x + 315 Now let's add 315 to both sides

anonymous
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay so x=405/31 !

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes and if we calculate that it equals 13.064516129

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3So now you have your answer!

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0loll You're welcome but really Thank you !

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3you are welcome  glad I stuck it out to get you the answer

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Yes me too like I really appreciate it, my professor said this is going to be the hardest test of the class so i must know the steps

wolf1728
 one year ago
Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3okay, now at least you know the steps for this problem. Sorry, I started out with the wrong equation.

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0@wolf1728 I'm sorry to bother you but I have one more problem and it's not as hard as the first one i promise. Just need to know these steps . And that's not a problem it was my fault i should've screenshotted it from the jump

wolf1728

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.3Yes the screen shot was MUCH easier to read :)

wolf1728
