Solve the equation: Give your answer as a fraction in its lowest terms:


I'm getting -1/3 but i think that's wrong!?!

Would appreciate some help please thanks! M

  • Math - ,

    8x = 12
    x = 12/8 = 3/2

  • Maths - ,

    Add 6x and 5 to both sides.

    8x = 12

    Divide both sides by 8.

    x = 1.5

    drwls's and PsyDAG's answers are the same. They are math teachers/tutors. I'd trust their process and answers.
