Solve the equation: Give your answer as a fraction in its lowest terms:
2x5=76x
I'm getting 1/3 but i think that's wrong!?!
Would appreciate some help please thanks! M

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

Add 6x and 5 to both sides.
8x = 12
Divide both sides by 8.
x = 1.5

your answer is 3 but in fraction must be 3/1. take your time to calculate your like terms.

Maybe I'm reading it wrong but it looks like two DIFFERENT answers. Mykmoloko how'd you come up with the answer 3, I'm trying to understnad the way the methods work. Thanks M

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