 Question 43589: I am having trouble when I get to near the bottom of the answer. I will show what I have. y/ y+7 + 7/y+7 =8 LCD: y+7 y+7 (y/y+7) + y+7 (7/y+7) = y+7 (8) I cross out the y+7 on the first set which makes it (y) I cross out the y+7 on the second set which makes it (7) for the = part, I see that it should be y+56 am I doing it right so far?

 Question 43590: At the end of my equation of: 4y/y-10 +1 = 3y/y-10 LCD: y-10 After all my multiplications I got 4y + y - 10 = 3y Does it end up the 4y + y =5y then - 10 = 3y 5y - 10 = 3y After adding the 10 to the right side we have 5y = 3y + 10 How am I going to get my Y's on one side? What one of them do I subtract? Maybe 5y - 3y = 10 ? then have 2y = 10 ? If so, do I divide the 10 by 2, to get y = 5 ? Click here to see answer by Nate(3500)

 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! Click here to see answer by Nate(3500)

 Question 43592: I am very confussed on a problem, I barel even know where to start. A/BH = 1/2 I am solving for H. I am very confussed, I know the LCD must be 2BH. I am just wondering how I am going about this. Click here to see answer by aaaaaaaa(138)

 Question 43637: In my denominator, for a LCD I don't know if I am suppose to combine the LCD to be (a-9)(a+6) since their is a negative AND positive. Could you please help me. equation: -2/a-9 = 3/a+8 Click here to see answer by Nate(3500)

 Question 43632: I am trying to solve for (p) I have no clue what to do, seeing as their is a LCD of 28, so far I have: my equation is m^/7 - n/2 = p/4 So far this is how far I have got before I got confussed. 28(m^/7) - 28(n/2) = 28(p/4) 4(m^) - 12(n) = 7(p) So my question would be, how do i get the (p) alone?

 Question 43703: I am having trouble with a new set of problems. The equation is: x+1/2x+3 = 2/3 I was having help but I can't remeber it all right now. So far I went to (2x+3)(x+1/2x+3 = 2/3 (2x+3) x+1 = 2/3 (2x/1) + 2/3 (3) 4x/3 + 6/9- 1 What do I need to do to finish this equation? Click here to see answer by jake_6233(74)

 Question 43704: I am looking at examples in my book for this equation, but since the (x) is on the top instead of the bottom, I am confussed. here is the equation: x/16 = 18/8 I think the LCD would be 8, considering 8 goes into both denominators. (8)(x/16) = (8) (18/8) x/2 = 18/1 Where am I going from here? Click here to see answer by jake_6233(74)
