5/8 x+1/16 x=11/16+x
16*(5/8 x+1/16 x) = 16(11/16+x)
10x + x = 11 + 16x, so the next step is:
11x = 11 + 16x (get xterms on the left.)
x = 11 (divide by 1.)
x = 11
Is this correct?

plug the value you found for x to determine whether or not this value is correct.
Like so:
5/8(11)+1/16(11)=11/16+ 11
11x = 11 + 16x
here's the next step:
11x16x = 11
collect like terms and solve for x

here's the next step:
11x16x = 11 (collect like terms and solve for x.)
5x = 11
x = 11
x = 11
Thank you TutorCat, the answer does match.

Please only post your questions once. Repeating posts will not get a quicker response. In addition, it wastes our time looking over reposts that have already been answered in another post. Thank you.
Again, dividing both sides by 5 does not give you
x = 11

You are correct, 11/5 = 2.2. Do I need to round off for a single integer?
