  1. Wouldn't that just be

    62x + 45 = 38x + 79 ??

    Am I missing something here?

  2. Integer coeffecients means numbers with no decimal part. Recall that an equation is still valid if you multiply both sides by the same value. For the coeffecients of X (6.2 on the left and 3.8 on the right) what would be required to change those to 62 and 38 respectively?
