Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0for \(x>\frac{9}{8}\) this is the same as \[9(98x)=2x+3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0oh maybe i just screwed that up lets make it easiery

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0\[98x=8x9\] so we can start with \[98x9=2x+3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0now if \(x>\frac{9}{8}\) that is the same as \[9(8x9)=2x+3\] which i guess you can solve

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is ugly, but you should get \(x=\frac{6}{5}\) i think

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0is this line \[98x=8x9\] clear?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ok now \(8x9\) is one of two things if \(x> \frac{9}{8}\) then \(8x9>0\) and if \(8x9>0\) then \(8x9=8x9\) because it is positive

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so if \(x>\frac{9}{8}\) you can go ahead and solve \[9(8x9)=2x+3\]

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0that takes a bit of algebra, but i assume it is doable

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I don't know how to solve it @satellite73

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0multiply out and get \[72x81=2x+3\]

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Do i combine like terms now?

anonymous

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0subtract \(2x\) get \[70x81=3\] then add \(81\) to get \[70x=84\] and finally divide by \(70\) to get \[x=\frac{84}{70}=\frac{6}{5}\]
