X-5/3 =1
Or
X - 5 = 1
______
3
I'm trying to type and tell you it's x-5 over 3 equals 1

I don't know how to do
I think I have to do reverse operation which is multiply

  • algebra - ,

    (x-5)/3 = 1, so multiply both sides of the equation by 3, and you'll get
    (x-5) = 3.
    Now add 5 to both sides of the equation and you'll get
    x = 3 + 5 = 8.
    And that's your answer.

  • algebra - ,

    Ok. I get it know
    3/1 *x-5/3. = 1*3
    Leaves
    X-5 = 3
    +5 = 3+5
    X= 8

    So next time I should do what I think which multiple. I just got thrown off cuz of x-5
    Thank you
