(4m-3 over 5)= (5m+2 over 12)Found 3 solutions by ReadingBoosters, MathTherapy, sher-sher:Answer by ReadingBoosters(3246)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Starting with 4m - 3/5 = 5m + 2/12 Group like terms 4m - 5m = 2/12 + 3/5 -m = 2/12 + 3/5 Create common denominator -m = 2/12(5/5) + 3/5(12/12) -m = 10/60 + 36/60 -m = 46/60 Divide both sides by -1 m = -46/60 = -23/30 ... Check 4(-46/60)-3/5 = -184/60-3/5(12/12)=-184/60-36/60=-220/60 = -22/6 5(-46/60)+2/12=-230/60+2/12(5/5)=-230/60+10/60=-220/60 = -22/6 .........................

Hi, how do you solve this fractional equation? Can you please explain it to me.... 4m-3/5=5m+2/12.... (4m-3 over 5)= (5m+2 over 12) 12(4m - 3) = 5(5m + 2) ------- Cross-multiplying 48m - 36 = 25m + 10 48m - 25m = 10 + 36 23m = 46 m = , or I'm sure you can do the check!!
