Storyboard Text

  • Alice, would you mind helping me with my math at home?
  • Of course, it's no problem at all
  • I was doing the practice questions she gave us, and I don't think I'm doing this correctly.
  • Math is kind of my specialty, so I'd be happy to help
  • Hey, so this is my equation, It looks really wrong to be honest
  • Okay, let's see1 2 --- (2x+8) = --- (7x - 7) 3 5
  • I don't know what I got wrong because I go -13 and --- 11 when I'm verifying the solution, it doesn't work
  • ohh, I see what you did here, when you're multiplying by the lowest common multiple, you cancel out the denominator, but you also multiple the lcm by the numerator, which you forgot to do
  • Ohh okayy, I get how to do that now, thank you
  • You also forgot to carry over the -21 to a +21, but since your numbers were wrong from the beginning, you would still be incorrect
  • Thank you so much for helping me Alice
  • Of course, anytime! Just to help you the answer is x = 41 --- 16
