 Example: Solve the equation 3x + 4(x-2) = 2(3x+4). Solution: Here the parenthesis in the equation should be removed first 3x + 4(x-2) = 2(3x+4) 3x + 4x - 8 = 6x + 8 7x - 8 = 6x + 8 Transposing 6x to L.H.S. and -8 to R.H.S., we have 7x - 6x = 8 + 8 x = 16 Verification: Substituting x = 16 in the equation L.H.S. Þ 3x + 4(x-2) = 3*16 + 4(16-2) 48 + 56 = 104 R.H.S. Þ 2(3x+4) = 2(3*16 + 4) = 2(48+4) 2(52) = 104 \ L.H.S. = R.H.S. \ x = 16 is the solution. Answer: 16 Directions: Solve the following equations. Also write at least five examples of your own.
