If you're doing (b+5ax)/x, would your answer be b+5a, or am I skipping something here?

This little fundamental problem is setting me back a bit, and I can't seem to find any answers on the internet.

i don't know the answer, but i do know that's wrong.
b/x+5a

you divide both terms by x.. the b becomes a fraction. in the 5ax, the x's cancel out
well....sorry

Okay, thanks. That was actually the other answer I was thinking it would be...

Anyone dare to tell this man he is wrong? I'd really like a few opinions.

hes right because if you divide both terms by x then its initially b/x + 5ax/x and that then simplifies to b/x + 5a
man i hate math.
im pretty sure hes right though

Nirvana guy beat me to it, but yea
its b/x+5a.

i guess the next qustion is,
whos in algerbra 1?
Well, if it gives you any peace of mind just know that you will rarely need to do that kind of stuff when you get into higher math courses because b/x+5a is just as hard to work with as (b+5ax)/x. But I guess you still need to know how to do it.

You don't need any, he's right.
YES

The answer is b/5 + 5a

I've counted to about 200, but i could probably count much higher if I really tried.

I ended up with the area between the paraboloid x^2 + z^2 = 1 and the sphere 3(x^2+y^2+z^2) = 27. I must be doing something wrong.
