10-72.

Solve each equation below for $x$. Check your work.

1. $\frac { x } { 2 } = 17$

1. $\frac { x } { 4 } = \frac { 1 } { 3 }$

1. $\frac { x + 6 } { 2 } + 2 = \frac { 5 } { 2 }$

1. $\frac { 4 } { x } = \frac { 5 } { 8 }$

Is there a way to eliminate the denominator?

$x=34$

Use the same method you used to solve part (a).

Multiply the equation by $2$ to remove fractions.

$x=−5$

Use the same method you used to solve part (a).
