Please rethink 7 and 8. The other answers are correct.

4.

x + 1/3 = 5/6

x = 5/6 - 1/3

x = 5/6 - 2/6

x = ?

9.

-x/11 = -6.1

-x = -6.1 * 11

x = 67.1

10.

-9 = -t/2

-18 = -t

18 = t

Please try 11 and 12 yourself.

so does #4 equal 5/6? Thats what i got.

I actually dont get number 11. or 12., how are you suppose to set it up?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 4:33pm
No.

**x = 5/6 - 2/6**

x = ?

Do 11 and 12 the same way I showed you on the other problems.

but on 11 and 12 you have to add the opposite to m. i dont get how to do that

is #4 one half?

**Ms. Sue**, Thursday, August 18, 2011 at 4:44pm
Yes. 4 is 3/6 = 1/2

11.

13.7 - x = -56.9

-x = -13.7 + (-56.9)

-x = -70.6

x = 70.6
