math need asap

posted by on .

5/8 x+1/16 x=11/16+x
16*(5/8 x+1/16 x) = 16(11/16+x)
80 + x + 16 + x= 11 + 16x
80 + 2x + 16 = 11 + 16x
-x = 18x (divide by 1)
x = 18

Did I do this correctly?

  • math need asap - ,

    no, after multiplying by 16 you get
    10x + x = 11 + 16x
    etc

  • math need asap - ,

    10x + x = 11 + 16x, so the next step is:

    11x = 11 + 16x (get x-terms on the left.)

    -x = 11 (divide by -1.)
    x = 11

    Is this now correct?

  • math need asap - ,

    11x = 11 + 16x

    Subtracting 16x from both sides:

    -5x = 11

    Now divide by -5.
