Solve: 7x24=26 1/3
This is what i did, not sure if I did it right.
7x24=26 and 1/3, 24 from both sides
7x= 2 and 1/3, then divide by 7 and got x= 2 and 1/3 over 7 I have no idea how to right that so I know it has to be wrong, please help!!

x=46/21

Double check the math on this.
7*(46/21)24 = 26/3
7*1/3  24 = 26+1/3
x=1/3 
first get rid of that useless mixed fraction.
7x24=79/3
now multiply each term by 3 to get rid of fractions and all those negative signs
21x + 72 = 79
21x = 7
x = 7/21 = 1/3

(7n1)/(8)=6 Okay, I think I add 1 to both sides, so now I have.. (7n)/(8)=7 And then, to get n by itself I divide 7 into both sides, so now I have.. n/8=1 n=1 is what I get, but I'm not sure, could someone please check this for me?
