Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0are you solving for just x? or simplifying?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright well this is fairly simple.. haha give me a moment?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0alright so the first we want to isolate x, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Correct, so would we minus 3/1 ?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0well not 3/1 but just 3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I just figured the 3/1 because we have to subtract it from the 15/2... Would we have to multiply the 3/1 by 2 to have an equal denominator?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so you will get 7x=15/23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0and yes that would be another way to do it but either way you will get the same answer if you simplify 15/23

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0do you see what im trying to say? haha

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0So if I do 15/23 would it just be 15?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the problem is I cannot use decimals in this equation, they want me to keep fractions. So 15/2 would just be 15/2 because it cannot be simplified.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0After doing the math 15/2  3/1 should come out to 9/2, right?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0it is always a negative so 156=21

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.07x+3=15/2 7x=15/23/1*2 "to combine these we need the same denominator so we multiply by two" 7x=15/26/2 7x=21/2

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0okay haha thats as far as i got now this is where you come in... we will simplify with decimals then replace them with fractions...
