hey amber would be great if you post ur work so we can look over and find out the mistakes instead starting over anywx first deal with the numerator \[\huge\rm \frac{\color{Red}{ 3-\frac{ 5 }{ x }} }{ \frac{ x }{ 5 } }\]

\[\huge\rm \color{ReD}{\frac{3}{1}- \frac{5}{x}}\] 3 is same as 3/1 now find the common denominator

wouldnt the LCD be x?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
right what would you get at the numerator \[\huge\rm \color{ReD}{\frac{???}{x} }\]
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
when we find common denominator we should multiply the numerator of first fraction by the denominator of 2nd fraction and multiply the numerator of 2nd fraction by the denominator of first fraction |dw:1443800744203:dw| just like cross multiply

3x-5?
Nnesha
  • Nnesha
right \[\huge\rm \frac{ \frac{ 3x-5 }{ x } }{ \frac{ x }{ 5 }}\] now to change division to multiplication we should multiply the top fraction with the `reciprocal ` of the bottom fraction
