x/60=((3950-x)/45)+8.1 Is the thing that is giving me problems.

x/60=((3950-x)/45)+8.1

Multiply through by the common denominator of 45, 60 = 180

So we have

3x = 4(3950 - x) + 1458 simplify

3x = 15800 - 4x + 1458 add 4x to both sides and simplify the right side

7x = 17528 divide both sides by 7

x ≈ 2465.43

Ok, I just wanted to make sure that I was doing the right thing that's all.
