Solve for x

x/6-x/8 equals 1

Do fraction busters

Find the least common denominator, which is 24. Change the fractions to where they have the same denominator. Change 1 to equal 24/24, and solve. Did this help?

x/6 + x/8 = 1

multiply each term by 24, the lowest common denominator.

4x + 3x = 24

x=24/7

nop
