I NEED A REFRESHER COURSE IN BASIC ALGEBRA. STEPS TO SOLVE AN EQUATION SUCH AS
4/X = 2/3 + 6. I KNOW THE ANSWER IS 6 BUT DO NOT KNOW THE STEPS TO GET THAT ANSWER.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
Hey, I'm not sure if you meant for me to solve 4/x = 2/3, or to solve 4/x = 2/3 + 6. I solved both just in case.
4/x = 2/3 Need to get x on a side by itself. For this proportion, cross-multiply.
x*2 = 4*3 Now simplify and multiply 4 by 3.
x*2 = 12 Divide 2 over to the other side of the equation.
x = 6
Incase you wanted the solution for this equation:
4/x = 2/3 + 6
Need to get x on a side by itself. Easiest to setup a proportion, then cross-multiply. First change 6 into a fraction with a common denominator as 2/3. So 6 is now written as 18/3
4/x = 2/3 + 18/3 Now add the two fractions on the right hand side of the equation.
4/x = 20/3 Cross multiply next.
20*x = 4*3
x = 12/20
x = 3/5
