3/17x=12

Math 
Ms. Sue
(3/17)x=12
x = 12/(3/17)
x = 12 * (17/3)
x = 204/3 = 68

(3/17)x = 12
to get x alone, you divide both sides by the numerical coefficient (number before the variable) of x. 3/17 divided by itself is 1 and thus thus
x = 12 / (3/17)
to divide by fraction, you get the reciprocal of the divisor (that is, the 3/17) and change the division operation to multiplication:
x = 12 * 17/3
x = 68
hope this helps~ :)

(x)/(x3)4(2x5)/(x+2) I posted something before this, so now this is how far I got. The answer I know is (5x^217x9)/(x3)(x+2) first I get (x)(x+2)/(x3)(x+2) (4)(x3)(x+2)/(x3)(x+2)(2x5)(x3)/(x3)(x+2) Then I get x^2+2x4x^24x242x^211x+15 …

Solve: 5x3=11+12x; 17x3=11; 17x3+3=11+3= 17x=14; x= 14/17 is this right?

Is this correct? The problem says perform the indicated operation. (9x^27x66)+(8x^2+9x) I came up with this for the answear 66+2x+17x^2 or could it be 17x^2+2x66

Thanks Reiny, but I'm still lost. I understand how you multipled by 10X on the right to get 17x, but you went too fast on the left, and I have no idea how you got 10x^220 from the starting left side. Can you show each step?
