But can someone solve this equation by clearing the fractions? -x+2/5=5-4/3x Thanks kathrynenconway@yahoo.comAnswer by ankor@dixie-net.com(15747)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Assume the problem is: -x + = 5 - x Multiply by 15 15(-x) + 15* = 15(5) - 15*x cancel the denominators, multiply -15x + 3(2) = 75 - 5(4x) -15x + 6 = 75 - 20x -15x + 20x = 75 - 6 5x = 69 x = x = 13.8 : If this is not the way the problem was given, resubmit using brackets to clarify what you mean.
