Thank you so much.Answer by ikdeep(226)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!x/6 - x/8 = 1 1st take the LCM of denominator i.e 6 & 8 which gives LCM = 24 on applying the LCM steps we get... (4x -3x)/ 24 = 1 now on cross multiplying ..we get 4x - 3x = 24 x = 24 ......to check you answer ,,,substitute the value of x = 24 in the given equation and we get x/6 - x/8 = 1 24/6 - 24/8 = 1 4 - 3 = 1 1 = 1 LHS = RHS Here checked or verified the answer Please feel free to revert back for any further queries.
