I found this question written in the challenge section of my algebra book.
It is given in words. I must write it as an equation and then solve for s.
-3 over 4 S - 3 = 1 over 3 S + 1 over 4
Here is my set up:
-3/(4s - 3) = 1/(3s) + 1/4
After doing the algebra, I get s = 21/64 but is this right?
Can anybody do this problem and find the correct answer?
I added the right side of the fractional equation first and then cross-multiplied to find s.
