kusuma Jul 25th, 2006 1/3+1/5+1/x=1/8 (5+3/15)+1/x=1/8 ( Taking LCM of 5,3=15) (8/15)+1/x=1/8 ( After LCM add the final result) 1/x=1/8-8/15 ( Taking 8/15 t0 right side then it changes to -8/15 ) 1/x=15-64/120 ( Taking LCM 8,15=120) 1/x=-49/120 ( After LCM the answer we get is -49/120) x=-120/49 ( The value of x is -120/49)

arvind Oct 7th, 2006 the ans is -(120/49)sol:1/x=1/8-1/5-1/31/x=(15-24-40)/1201/x=-(49/120)so ans is x=-(120/49)
