can somebody help me with this problem....DONT GIVE ME THE ANSWER JUST HOW TO WORK IT...

2r + 8 / 4 = 3r - 6 /3

• COLLEGE ALGEBRA -

i think i figured it out.....i think the answer is r=8

• COLLEGE ALGEBRA -

Not correct

Post your work and someone can explain what you are doing wrong.

First simplify 8/4 and 6/3
and then combine like terms.

• COLLEGE ALGEBRA -

helper, its not 8/4 and 6/3. its 2r+8 over 4 = 3r-6 over 3

• COLLEGE ALGEBRA -

That is written
(2r+8)/4 = (3r-6)/3

(r+4)/2 = (r-2)

r+4 = 2(r-2)

r+4 = 2r - 4

8 = r

check
(16+8)/4 =? (24-6)/3

24/4 = ? 18/3

6 = 6 yes, it checks

Thanks so much!

• COLLEGE ALGEBRA -

(2r + 8)/4 = (3r - 6)/3

Yes, you are correct, r = 8.
