 Linear-equations/459876: I am having problems with understanding how to solve equations that involve LCD. Such as 10/4y+6/2=2y-2. I don't understand the whole concept so if you could maybe tell me how I would go about solving that problem and explain each step so I know how to do it in future equations I would appreciate it. Thank you1 solutions Answer 315520 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15638)   on 2011-06-11 18:29:12 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!assume the problem is: y + = 2y - 2 the common denominator would be 4, multiply each term by 4 4*y + 4*= 4(2y) - 4(2) Cancel the denominators and you have 10y + 2(6) = 8y - 8 10y + 12 = 8y - 8 10y - 8y = -8 - 12 2y = -20 y = y = -10 : : See if that checks out, replace y with -10 in the original problem (-10) + = 2(-10) - 2 + 3 = -20 - 2 -25 + 3 = -22
 test/459968: A car is driving from point A to point B at 50mph and from point B to point A at 60mph. The whole trip took 11hrs. How mach distance was driven in that time... 1 solutions Answer 315515 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15638)   on 2011-06-11 18:19:32 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!A car is driving from point A to point B at 50mph and from point B to point A at 60mph. The whole trip took 11 hrs. How mach distance was driven in that time... : Let d = the one-way distance : Write a time equation: Time = dist/speed : A-B time + B-A time = 11 hrs + = 11 multiply by 300 300* + 300* = 300(11) Cancel the denominators, resulting in: 6d + 5d = 3300 d = d = 300 mi is the one-way dist : Total dist: 2(300) = 600 driven in 11 hrs
 test/459945: Solve __8__ = __7__ y+2 y-9 The solution to y = ??? simplify answer, use integer or fraction. Thank you in advance for your assistance. Devoted, Minka.1 solutions Answer 315482 by ankor@dixie-net.com(15638)   on 2011-06-11 14:47:25 (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!Solve : = : When you have single a fractions on each side of the equal side, you can cross multiply: 8(y-9) = 7(y+2) : 8y - 72 = 7y + 14 : 8y - 7y = 14 + 72 : y = 86 : : Check this in the original equation = = : How about this, is this stuff making sense to you now? Just knowing a few rules makes it possible to solve a lot of these problems.
