SOLVE FOR A

solving equations with fractions

- math -
**Reiny**, Thursday, July 12, 2012 at 6:26pmI have a feeling you meant:

(a-2)/6 - 5 = (a+3)/3

multiply each term by 6

a-2 + 30 = 2a + 6

-a = 6+2-30

a = 22

the way you typed it, the equation would simplify to

a - 1/3 - 5 = a + 1

the a's would drop out, and there would be no solution.
