# What does x equal if five divided by three x minus four divided three x minus one equals eight?

To solve for x, we can start by isolating x on one side of the equation.

Starting with the equation:

scss

Copy code

5 / (3x - 4) = 8 / (3x - 1)

We can multiply both sides of the equation by (3x - 1) (3x - 4) to clear the denominators:

scss

Copy code

5 * (3x - 4) = 8 * (3x - 1)

15x - 20 = 24x - 8

-9x = -28

x = 28 / -9

Finally, we can simplify the right-hand side:

makefile

Copy code

x = 28 / -9

x = -3.1111...

So the solution is x = -3.1111....
