Can someone help me and give me a step by step to solve the following? 147/20/2-x = 147/10 So 147 over 20 over 2-x equals 147 over 10.

It sounds like your equation is If that's correct first note that you can cancel out the 147 from both sides. That leaves you with Flip this equation upside down and solve for x -Dan
147/20/2-x = 147/10 147/20 ÷ (2-x) = 147/10 147/20 × 1/(2-x) = 147/10 147/20(2-x) = 147/10 divide by 147 to both sides 1/20(2-x) = 1/10 20(2-x) = 10 ---------- divide by 10 2(2-x) = 1 4 – 2x = 1 2x = 3 x = 3/2 -----
