(n7)/8 + (n+7)/9 = 5/36
I need to solve for n. The answer I reached was n= 32/17, but apparently that's incorrect? I even had someone else check my work and they did the same thing as me. I'm at a loss here.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay, so (n7)/8 + (n+7)/9 = 5/36 the LCR of 8, 9 and 36 is 72. 8 goes into 72 9 times, so I multiply n7 by nine, and then 9 goes into 72 8 times, so I multiply n+7 by 8. 36 goes into 72 2 times, so multiply 5 times 2 ..... I think I just found my problem actually. I kept writing 9n  7 + 8n + 56 = 25 when I should've had it equal 10. Darn it. sorry to take up your time for such a silly mistake
