Homework Help: algebra

Posted by aria on Thursday, April 28, 2011 at 5:31am.

Problem Two: 5/9 + (2/9)x = 25/7 + (6/7)x 2/3

Multiply figures inside parentheses
5/9 + (1 x 2/9x) = 25/7 + (1 x 6/7x) 2/3

Collect like signs
5/9 + 2/9(6/7x) = 25/7 + (-2/3)

Multiply like signs
2 x 6
9 7

Reduce like numbers
2 x 2 = 4x
3 7 21x

Multiply number fractions
5 x 25 = 125
9 7 63

Add 2 = 123
3 60

All I can figure out is
4/21x = 123/60

I know this is wrong but I am stumped.

Can someone explain this in a simple way? I have never done a problem like this before and can't find anything in the text book to help.
