Solving Fraction Equations Worksheet

                    Lesson 1

                                                                                                                                                                          

                                                            Problem:                   Solve: y/10 + 5y/5 = 6/2

                                                            Step 1:                    What is the common denominator?  10

                             

                     

                                                                                Solution                          Multiply every term by 10, and get: 1 (y) + 2 (5y) = 5 (6)

Step 2:                        

 

                                                                                Solution                           Just like addition/subtraction, "lose" the denominators.

                           Step 3:           

                                                                                               1 (y) + 2 (5y) = 5 (6); = y+10y=30; y = 30/11

                                                             Solution                    The answer is:  2.72

                                                             Try two practice problems:  

                       

                                                                                                Solve:

 

A. z/10 + 2z/5 = 8/2

 

 

 

B. 15 2q/3 = q/6
