math, really need some feedback asap.

posted by on .

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 x-terms 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:
    11x-16x = 11

    collect like terms and solve for x

    here's the next step:
    11x-16x = 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?
