 Question 26386: This equation I have been stuck on it for three days now and can not seem to get past it: 5-a/b ------ 15/b My answers for solutions are A) 5b - 1 ----------- 15 B) 5b - a ---------- 15 C) 5-a -------- 15 D) b-a -------- 3 This is a division problem that is why I put the lines there. I believe I would divide the 15 by 5 = 3. Then I think I would also divide the b by the b which would eliminate the b. So I would have gotten this for an answer: 5 - a -------- 3 But this is not an answer on the test as you can see. Where am I going wrong with this problem? Thank you so much for your help!

 Question 27220: I took my test and got a lot of answers wrong. He circled the correct answers but no matter what I try I keep getting mine. For example: 3(x-2)+7=2(x+5) I distribute first, to get 3x-2+7=2x+10 I simplify to get 3x+5=2x+10 and then again to get x+5=10, then x=5, which is my answer. He circled 9 as the right answer. In fact, 5 isn't even an option (multiple choice). What am I doing wrong?? I keep getting 5 no matter how I do it. Another is 11x-(6x-5)=40 I combine to get 5x-5=40, then simplify to get 5x=45, and again to get my answer : x=9 He has 7 circled as the right answer. What am I doing wrong?
