 Question 43591: Could you please help me with this equation because the numbers seem out ragous and the end does not make much sense to me, therefor I don't think I did it right. x/15 + 17x/9 =x/12 I found the LCD to be 180 so we have 180(x/15) + 180(17x/9) 180(x/12) 1. 180 and 15 cancel out to be 12 2. 180 and 9 cancel out to be 20 3. = 180 cancels out to be 15 I then have 12x + 20(17x) = 15x 12x + 340x = 15x 352x = 15x I don't know if I am suppose to divide the 15 and 352, or something totaly different. Could you please show me how the ending is supose to work. Thanks!Answer by Nate(3500)   (Show Source):
