Answer

$\frac{x}{9}$ + $\frac{x}{10}$ = 15

Work Step by Step

The sum of $\frac{1}{9}$ of a number and $\frac{1}{10}$ of that number gives 15. let the number be x " $\frac{1}{9}$ of a number" = $\frac{1}{9}$x = $\frac{x}{9}$ "$\frac{1}{10}$ of that number" = $\frac{1}{10}$x = $\frac{x}{10}$ The sum of $\frac{1}{9}$ of a number and $\frac{1}{10}$ of that number = $\frac{x}{9}$ + $\frac{x}{10}$ On the right hand side we have 15 $\frac{x}{9}$ + $\frac{x}{10}$ = 15
