6-2/5x=40

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Try rewriting it. I can't tell exactly what it is because of the division sign.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

6 -2/5x=40

OpenStudy (nali):

u mean 6 times -2/5x=40

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Use parentheses

OpenStudy (radar):

6-(2/5x)=40 -2/5x=34 -2=170x x=-2/170 x=-0.01176

OpenStudy (anonymous):

\[6-\frac{2}{5x}\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Is that it?

OpenStudy (anonymous):

or \[6-\frac{2}{5}x\]

OpenStudy (anonymous):

yes and it =to 40

OpenStudy (anonymous):

Yes to which one?

OpenStudy (radar):

6-.4x=40 -.4x=34 x=-85

OpenStudy (anonymous):

@radar Which answer is it?

OpenStudy (radar):

I don't know which question, lol I tried to do both

OpenStudy (radar):

(2/5) (x) would be .4x that was the last attempt.

OpenStudy (radar):

The asker needs to remove the ambiguity from the way he presents the problem.

OpenStudy (anonymous):

lol sorry fpor the confusion guys but its -85

OpenStudy (radar):

So it was the last way lol
