Need another question answerd please Solve for x: x + 4 over 3 = x - 8 over 5
Follow Math Help Forum on Facebook and Google+
$\displaystyle \frac{x+4}{3} = \frac{x-8}{5}$ Cross multipy and then solve for x
Sorry, still not sure. Can you simplify it a bit more for me?
$\displaystyle 3(x-8)= 5(x+4)$ After that distribute and solve for x
Is the answer -6?
$\displaystyle 3x -24 = 5x + 20$ $\displaystyle -44 = 2x$ $\displaystyle -22 = x$
Hey, I get it now. Thank you!! Thank you!! Thank you!!
