# How do you solve k/3+k/6=7/2?

Mar 3, 2016
• Multiply each term by the common denominator
• Solve it!
• Find that $k = 7$

#### Explanation:

As written in the answer, we have to multiply each term by the common denomnator, which is $6$.
This gives us:

$\frac{k \cdot 6}{3} + \frac{k \cdot 6}{6} = \frac{7 \cdot 6}{2}$

Divide...

$k \cdot 2 + k = 7 \cdot 3$

Solve...

$2 k + k = 21$
$3 k = 21$
$k = 7$
