ok, i typed it out right this time.

(5/4)x+(1/8)x=11/8+x

(10/8)x+(1/8)x=11/8+x
(11/8)x=11/8+x
(3/8)x=11/8
Ok now I subtracted from both sides

How do I finish the problem out?

  • math -

    multiply each side by 8/3
    x = 11/8 * 8/3
    x = 11/3

    see my first solution in the previous post dealing with this question for a simpler way.

    thank you

    same question, but it didn't come across right. 500 equals 1 over X to the half 500 = 1/(X^1/2) Multiply both sides by X^1/2. 500*X^1/2 = (1*X^1/2)/X^1/2. X^1/2 divides out on the right side leaving 500*X^1/2 = 1. Now square both sides. …

    6-y --------- y^2-27-24 well it should simplify to (6-y)/(y^-1) which then changes to y(6-y) which then equals y(6-y)=0 then you set both parts equal to zero and solve for xero y=0 and/or (6-y)=0 so y=0 or y=6 Did you mean for this …

    I really don't understand this stuff for example: 9b-3b+34<2b-10 and 7a+3=24 letters represent variables so they can be anything really. Once you understand this step then the rest of the problem can start to make sense. Inequalities …

    I need help with thisone solve: ((x)/(5x+10))+ ((x-3)/(x+2)) = (7)/(5) Let's take that first part: (x)/(5x+10) In the denominator, factor out "5" That leaves that part as: x/(5(x+2)) So now we have: ((x)/5(x+2)) + ((x-3)/(x+2)) = 7/5 …

    Show that the distance between the points (x,y) and the line Ax + By + C = 0 is: D = (Ax + By + C) / sqrt(A^2 + B^2) So, would you start out by multiplying sqrt (A^2 + B^2) to both sides and then it would become: sqrt (A^2 + B^2)D …
