3 = 4
-------------
x-8 x=2
how do you solve this

  • college algebra -

    You will have to write it in a way that makes sense.
    3 does not equal 4.

  • college algebra -

    If it is
    4 3
    -=----
    2 (x-8)

    You would cross multiply to get
    4(x-8)=3*2
    Expand
    4x-32=6
    Isolate x
    4x = 6+32=38
    x=38/4=19/2
