math - Mr. L, Wednesday, July 22, 2009 at 7:23pm
5/8x is the same as 10/16x
That should help

my final answer would be
7/27 do i have it right

  • math -

    As Mr. L pointed out, you have to add the two terms on the left-hand side (LHS):
    5/8x + 1/16x=7/16
    (10/16)x + (1/16)x = 7/16
    10x + x = 7
    11x = 7
    I will leave it to you to complete the calculations.

  • math -

    so my answer would be

    -4 because you 11x=7-11=-4

  • math -

    If we start from
    11x=7
    we divide each side by 11 to get
    (11/11)x = 7/11
    x=7/11
    So x=7/11 would be the correct answer.
