Hey, its bin ages since i did any maths, and gotten a little rusty, am i doing this right when solving these equations?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Find a

3/a+1 = 4/a

(multiply a+1) 3 = (4a + 4)/a

(multiply a) 3a = 4a + 4

(-4) 3a - 4 = 4a

(-3a) -4 = a

Is this right? or have i done this wrong? its looks easy to do (basics) but i've forgotton! Let me kno cheers!
