(5a-3/2)-(3a-9/8)=6Answer by stanbon(57984)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!(5a-3)/2 -(3a-9)/8 = 6 ---- The least common multiple of 2 and 8 is 8. Multiply thru by 8 to get: 4(5a-3) - (3a-9) = 8*6 --- 20a-12-3a+9 = 48 --- 17a - 3 = 48 --- 17a = 51 --- a = 3 =========== Cheers, Stan H.
