5/8a+6=3/4a
6=1/8a
a=6/8

is this correct? thank you.

  • math -

    This part is right.

    6 = 1/8a

    However, you need to divide both sides of the equation by 1/8.

    6/(1/8) = a

    6 * 8 = a

    48 = a

    Let's see if that makes sense.

    (5/8 * 48) + 6 = 36

    (3/4) * 48 = 36

    Yep. a = 48
