hello everybody,
how about refreshing the mind of an old cow on how to solve this algebraic equation? solve for x
(12-x/5) - (x/5) = 0.835
pls. show the step by step procedure
mucha mucha gracias

No, multiplication or division is always done first, before adding or subtracting, unless the + or term is enclosed within brackets. So the first part of the equation is 12 minus one-fifth of x.Originally posted by Firestorm@Apr 14 2005, 04:18 AM
........not really sure on your (12-x/5): Is just x over 5 or is everything(12-x)/5?
I am going to work this out assuming it is all over 5........

Hi Moz. If you got the answer 3.91 then it was not the answer to the equation you had shown.Originally posted by mozikluv@Apr 16 2005, 03:25 AM
hi,
thanx pebe for additional input for the problem that i have presented. actually i had the answer or the value of "X" which is 3.91 rounded off. it's just i don't know how the answer was arrive at. Firestorm solved it and he got the same answer, likewise a newly graduate engineering student passed by the house and i also ask him to solve it for me and he also got the same answer.
