How would you solve the following 2 equations for "X"?

x-4(divided by)12=7(divided by3


100(divided by)30=4(divided by)3x

  • Math -

    (x-4)/12 = 7/3

    Multiply both sides by 12.

    x-4 = 28

    You should be able to take that one from there.

    100/30 = 10/3 = 4/3x

    Multiply both sides by 3x.

    10x = 4

    Take it from there.

    Do you understand the underlying principle? I hope so.

  • Math -

    Yeah, thanks so much! I just got confused because the equations were in fraction form!
