    Need some help

    Hello, I've been having some trouble with this problem:
    6c / 11 + 9 / 2 = 3

    I am supposed to find the Equivalent Equation.

    So far I have this:
    12c / 22 + 99 / 22 = 3

    Any further help would be appreciated.

    No, you shouldn't multiply (11 + 9) by 2 as well.

    It should be:

    12c/11 + 9 = 3
    12c/20 = 3
    12c = 60
    c = 5

    Hope it helps

    No, the problem is like this.
    Code:
    6c   9
    -- + - = 3
    11   2
    It's a fraction.

    Oh, ok.

    Multiply straight through with 22.

    12c + 99 = 66
    12c = -33
    c = -33/12

    Just a tip:

    When posting please use brackets because it makes it a lot more understandable.
