x-1/4=x+23 ....It's really confusing because I don't know what to do I always get lost in the problem jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

Is the problem $\Large \frac{x-1}{4}=x+23$ ??? OpenStudy (anonymous):

X-1/4=X+2/3 OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yeah jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

oh ok So it's $\Large \frac{x-1}{4}=\frac{x+2}{3}$ ??? OpenStudy (anonymous):

So like don't you have to to Multiply The 4 by 4 and Divide? jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

If so, then... (x-1)/4 = (x+2)/3 3(x-1) = 4(x+2) 3x-3=4x+8 3x=4x+8+3 3x-4x=8+3 -x=8+3 -x=11 x=11/(-1) x=-11 So the solution is x = -11 jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

let me know if anything doesn't make sense OpenStudy (anonymous):

3(x-1) = 4(x+2) when you did 3(x-1) you distribute right? jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

on that step, I was cross multiplying jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):

when I got 3x-3=4x+8, I was distributing OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yeah that's what I figured OpenStudy (anonymous):

yea lol my caculater is messed up! OpenStudy (anonymous):

THANKS jimthompson5910 (jim_thompson5910):
