Hi, Am working my way through some algebra problems and am quite stumped in my attempt to simplfy at this point!
((9/x)= 5/(x-3)) = (x(9/x))=(x(5/(x-3))
= (9 = 5x/(x-3))
NB; x= 6+ 3/4.
Hello, nnjond!
Solve for x: . $\displaystyle \frac{9}{x}\;=\;\frac{5}{x-3}$
Multiply both sides by the LCD, $\displaystyle x(x-3)\!:\;\;{\color{blue}x(x-3)}\cdot\frac{9}{x} \;=\;{\color{blue}x(x-3)}\cdot\frac{5}{x-3}$
. . And we have: .$\displaystyle 9(x-3) \;=\;5x$
Got it?
