You are watching: What is 3 of 1200
Step by Step Solution
Rearrange the equation by subtracting what is to the right of the equal sign from both sides of the equation : 3/5-(x/1200)=0
Step by step solution :
Step 1 :
x Simplify ———— 1200Equation at the end of step 1 : 3 x — – ———— = 0 5 1200
Step 2 :
3 Simplify — 5Equation at the end of step 2 : 3 x — – ———— = 0 5 1200
Step 3 :
Calculating the Least Common Multiple :3.1 Find the Least Common Multiple The left denominator is : 5 The right denominator is : 1200
|Product of allPrime Factors||5||1200||1200|
Least Common Multiple: 1200
Calculating Multipliers :
3.2 Calculate multipliers for the two fractions Denote the Least Common Multiple by L.C.M Denote the Left Multiplier by Left_M Denote the Right Multiplier by Right_M Denote the Left Deniminator by L_Deno Denote the Right Multiplier by R_DenoLeft_M=L.C.M/L_Deno=240Right_M=L.C.M/R_Deno=1
Making Equivalent Fractions :
3.3 Rewrite the two fractions into equivalent fractionsTwo fractions are called equivalent if they have the same numeric value. For example : 1/2 and 2/4 are equivalent, y/(y+1)2 and (y2+y)/(y+1)3 are equivalent as well. To calculate equivalent fraction , multiply the Numerator of each fraction, by its respective Multiplier.
L. Mult. • L.
Num. 3 • 240 —————————————————— = ——————— L.C.M 1200 R. Mult. • R. Num. x —————————————————— = ———— L.C.M 1200Adding fractions that have a common denominator :3.4 Adding up the two equivalent fractions Add the two equivalent fractions which now have a common denominatorCombine the numerators together, put the sum or difference over the common denominator then reduce to lowest terms if possible:
3 • 240 – (x) 720 – x ————————————— = ——————— 1200 1200 Equation at the end of step 3 : 720 – x ——————— = 0 1200
Step 4 :
When a fraction equals zero :4.1 When a fraction equals zero …Where a fraction equals zero, its numerator, the part which is above the fraction line, must equal zero.Now,to get rid of the denominator, Tiger multiplys both sides of the equation by the denominator.Here”s how:
720-x ————— • 1200 = 0 • 1200 1200 Now, on the left hand side, the 1200 cancels out the denominator, while, on the right hand side, zero times anything is still zero.The equation now takes the shape:720-x=0
Solving a Single Variable Equation:4.2Solve:-x+720 = 0Subtract 720 from both sides of the equation:-x = -720 Multiply both sides of the equation by (-1) : x = 720
