5 over 2x-5 minus 4 over 5= 1 over 2x-5
I have a quick question... what would i multiply by? I know how to do the rest of the problem. Thank you
Lets' start by writing the equation without words.
5/(2x-5) - 4/5 = 1/(2x-5)
Combine the two terms with 2x-5 in the denominator.
4/(2x-5) = 4/5
20 = 8x -20
8x = 40
x = 5
