Problem 625

Remove fractional coefficients from the equation $2 \mathrm{x}^{3}-(2 / 3) \mathrm{x}^{2}-(1 / 8) \mathrm{x}+(3 / 16)=0$

Expert verified

To remove the fractional coefficients from the equation \(2x^3 - (\frac{2}{3})x^2 - (\frac{1}{8})x + (\frac{3}{16}) = 0\), find the least common denominator (LCD) of the fractions, which is 24. Then, multiply the entire equation by the LCD and distribute it to each term: \(48x^3 - 16x^2 - 3x + 4.5 = 0\). The equivalent equation without fractions is \(48x^3 - 16x^2 - 3x + 4.5 = 0\).
