Mean that I want to know? in fact yes I been pretty good with these latly but this one is very tricky for me Ehat I did was add the negitive ten to the right then collected the like ertms so I added 5/3 and 1/3 obtaining 6/3 now did I have to reduce that to two? or not but any way I went with 6/3 and performed the recipical operation on the 10 and i resulted with twenty.
