It could specify the fraction 4/6 (which is equal to 2/3). Evaluating the fraction (by long division, say) would give 0.6666666..., but that's probably more than you need to know at the moment.

It could specify a division, which would have quotient 0 and remainder 4.
Thanks from Basko

Algebra Revision

4x+5=3x+6
I have a Summer Exam at the beginning of next week on all topics that we have done, so I decided to do Algebra, but I forgot how to do it, because it was a while ago; can anyone show me the method again please to memorize?
Thanks in advance.

Hello. For the problem
4x+5=3x+6
Just remember to combine like terms first. For example, I would take 3x and subtract it from 4x, which is 1x. Then subtract 5 from 6, which is 1. So your answer would be 1x =1 or (x=1). Hope this helps Basko.

Hi. Speaking technically, we do the subtractions first (i.e., get variable terms on one side only, with all constants on the other side). We combine like-terms after that.
