In this video, we are going to solve fractional equations, such as , by using the least common denominator.
For example: , find the value of x
First, find the least common denominator, which is 6x. Multiple every numerator by 6x
The x and 6 cancel out with the denominator, leaving us with
Now, let’s solve it like any other equations. Subtract 24 from both sides.
Isolate the x and we have
