looking at this, you be like what?

kind of want to get rid of some fractions.

lets multiply everything by 4, cause of that 1/4 at the front will go away.

5x/12 - 3/4 > 4x + 1/3, a little better

we could multiply everything by 12 now and get rid of all fractions

or we could start moving terms around and combining.

i think i will try  times 12  to all terms, cause of that 5/12 in front.

 

one would only do this if all fractions were reduced by this. 

if there was a 1/5 then 12 would not work cause 12/5 does not become a whole number

 

5x - 9 > 48x + 4 is what we get after *12 to all terms

now we can move and combine.

5x to the right, 4 to the left, change signs

-9 -4 > 48x - 5x

-13 > 43x

divide by 43 to x alone

-13/43 > x

seems to be the last answer
