 Question 205902: Please help me with this question. I really need step by step. Thanks so much. 1/6x - 1/8x = 1/72Answer by checkley77(12569)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!1/6x - 1/8x = 1/72 x/6-x/8=1/72 (8x-6x)/48=1/72 2x/48=1/72 2x*72=1*48 144x=48 x=48/144 x=1/3 ans. Proof: (1/3)/6-(1/3)/8=1/72 1.3*1/6-1/3*1/8=1/72 1/18-1/24=1/72 (24-18)/(18*24)=1/72 6/432=1/72 1/72=1/72
