(5/4)x+(1/8)x=11/8+x

(10/8)x+(1/8)x=11/8+x

(11/8)x=11/8+x

(3/8)x=11/8

Ok now I subtracted from both sides

How do I finish the problem out?

**Reiny**, Wednesday, January 7, 2009 at 11:43ammultiply each side by 8/3

x = 11/8 * 8/3

x = 11/3

see my first solution in the previous post dealing with this question for a simpler way.
