How do i do 2/5 x -1/12= 3/5 x -3/4
first you subtract 2/5x from both sides (that leaves you with -1/12=1/5x-3/4) add 3/4 to both sides (8/12=1/5x) then multiply both sides by five (40/12 or 3 1/3=x)
first subtract 2/5x from both sides. and add 3/4 to both sides. then divide both sides by 1/5
you combine like terms first: 2/5x-3/5x= -1/12+3/6. Then solve.
First subtract 2/5x from both sides.Then add 3/4 to both sides.Now you have all x terms on one side3/4-1/12 = 1/5x2/3 =1/5xMultiply both sides by 510/3 = x
