Here is how i understand how to figure it out. It asks me to solve for x, write answer as fraction and in simpilest form.

6(5/3x-5/2)=6(-4/9)

then i got

6(5/3x)-6(-5/2)=6(-4)

30x-30=-24

30x-30+30=-24

30x=-24

Then i divided both sides by 30 and got -(4/5) but that wasnt right.

heres another question that i asked my professor about. same type.

(9/8x)+(3/4)=(7/2)

8((9/8x)+(3/4))=8(7/2)

8(9/8x)+8(3/4)=8(7/2)

9x+2(3)=4(7) simplifies to 9x+6=28

then he got 9x+6-6=28-6

9x=22, then he divided both sides by 9 and got (22/9).

Im really confused. cause i did a couple and emailed him all my work and answers and they were wrong. So i dont know what to do anymore.
