15x + 17 1/3 = (23.5-45) 3.45 idk how to do this :(

idk how to even start tbh (ik this is easy for some people but i honestly dont understand it)

are we supposed to graph it

no just solve :/

"solve for x"

15x + 17 1/3 = (23.5-45) 3.45 i legit think its not solvable

I dont think it is

hm :/

there is no other x

shi i forgot the x at the end 15x + 17 1/3 = (23.5-45) 3.45x

\[15x + 17\frac{ 1 }{ 3 } = (23.5-45) 3.45x \] Err I may be wrong but this is ur equation right?

Like that's how its set up?

yes

thinking*

thats the problem

Mkay well you're going to want to turn the mixed number (17 1/3) into a fraction. So 17 times 3= 51+1= 52/3 So then it becomes:\[15x+\frac{ 52 }{ 3 }=\left(23.5-45\right)3.45x\]

is it the same as pemdas with solving the things in the brackets first?

And \[23.5-45 \times 3.45x = -74.175x\]
Then your equation becomes:
\[15x+\frac{ 52 }{ 3 }=-74.175x\]
Move 52/3 to the right,
\[15x=-74.175x-17.3333 \] and so on
74.175x to the left
\[89.175=-17.3333\]
Divide both sides by 89.175x
And then you get ** x=-0.19437** I believe

thank you fo you're help.
