How would you solve the following 2 equations for "X"?
x-4(divided by)12=7(divided by3
100(divided by)30=4(divided by)3x
(x-4)/12 = 7/3
Multiply both sides by 12.
x-4 = 28
You should be able to take that one from there.
100/30 = 10/3 = 4/3x
Multiply both sides by 3x.
10x = 4
Take it from there.
Do you understand the underlying principle? I hope so.
Yeah, thanks so much! I just got confused because the equations were in fraction form!
