5/8x+1/16x=7/16+x
the solution is x=-7/5
is this correct?

• math -

(5/8)x + (1/16)x = 7/16 + x
(10/16)x + (1/16)x = 7/16 + x
(11/16)x = 7/16 + x
(-5/16)x = 7/16
x = (-7/5)

5/8 x+1/16 x=11/16+x 16*(5/8 x+1/16 x) = 16(11/16+x) 10x + x = 11 + 16x, so the next step is: 11x = 11 + 16x (get x-terms on the left.) -x = 11 (divide by -1.) x = 11 Is this correct?
