Work Step by Step

$\frac{x}{6}$+$\frac{4x}{3}$=$\frac{x}{18}$ 18($\frac{x}{6}$+$\frac{4x}{3}$)=18$\frac{x}{18}$ 18$\frac{x}{6}$+18$\frac{4x}{3}$=x 3x+6*4x=x 3x+24x=x 27x=x 27x-x=x-x 26x=0 x=0 The solution is 0 Check Let x=0 $\frac{x}{6}$+$\frac{4x}{3}$=$\frac{x}{18}$ $\frac{0}{6}$+$\frac{4*0}{3}$=$\frac{0}{18}$ 0+0=0 0=0
