Step by Step Solution

*

Rearrange:

Rearrange the equation by subtracting what is khổng lồ the right of the equal sign from both sides of the equation : x-3/4-(1/3)=0

Step by step solution :

Step 1 :

1 Simplify — 3Equation at the end of step 1 : 3 1 (x - —) - — = 0 4 3

Step 2 :

3 Simplify — 4Equation at the end of step 2 : 3 1 (x - —) - — = 0 4 3

Step 3 :

Rewriting the whole as an Equivalent Fraction :3.1Subtracting a fraction from a whole Rewrite the whole as a fraction using 4 as the denominator :

x x • 4 x = — = ————— 1 4 Equivalent fraction : The fraction thus generated looks different but has the same value as the whole Common denominator : The equivalent fraction and the other fraction involved in the calculation nói qua the same denominator

Adding fractions that have a common denominator :3.2 Adding up the two equivalent fractions địa chỉ the two equivalent fractions which now have a common denominatorCombine the numerators together, put the sum or difference over the common denominator then reduce lớn lowest terms if possible:

x • 4 - (3) 4x - 3 ——————————— = —————— 4 4 Equation at the end of step 3 : (4x - 3) 1 ———————— - — = 0 4 3

Step 4 :

Calculating the Least Common Multiple :4.1 Find the Least Common Multiple The left denominator is : 4 The right denominator is : 3

Least Common Multiple: 12

Calculating Multipliers :

4.2 Calculate multipliers for the two fractions Denote the Least Common Multiple by L.C.M Denote the Left Multiplier by Left_M Denote the Right Multiplier by Right_M Denote the Left Deniminator by L_Deno Denote the Right Multiplier by R_DenoLeft_M=L.C.M/L_Deno=3Right_M=L.C.M/R_Deno=4

Making Equivalent Fractions :

4.3 Rewrite the two fractions into equivalent fractionsTwo fractions are called equivalent if they have the same numeric value. For example : 50% and 2/4 are equivalent, y/(y+1)2 and (y2+y)/(y+1)3 are equivalent as well. Lớn calculate equivalent fraction , multiply the Numerator of each fraction, by its respective Multiplier.

Num. 4 —————————————————— = —— L.C.M 12Adding fractions that have a common denominator :4.4 Adding up the two equivalent fractions

(4x-3) • 3 - (4) 12x - 13 ———————————————— = ———————— 12 12 Equation at the kết thúc of step 4 : 12x - 13 ———————— = 0 12

Step 5 :

When a fraction equals zero :5.1 When a fraction equals zero ...Where a fraction equals zero, its numerator, the part which is above the fraction line, must equal zero.Now,to get rid of the denominator, Tiger multiplys both sides of the equation by the denominator.Here"s how:

12x-13 —————— • 12 = 0 • 12 12 Now, on the left hand side, the 12 cancels out the denominator, while, on the right hand side, zero times anything is still zero.The equation now takes the shape:12x-13=0

Solving a Single Variable Equation:5.2Solve:12x-13 = 0Add 13 lớn both sides of the equation:12x = 13 Divide both sides of the equation by 12:x = 13/12 = 1.083
