Solve:

1. 8y – 4y = 20

Solution:

8y – 4y = 20

By further calculation

4y = 20

So we get

y = 20/4 = 5

2. 9b – 4b + 3b = 16

Solution:

9b – 4b + 3b = 16

By further calculation

8b = 16

So we get

b = 16/8 = 2

3. 5y + 8 = 8y – 18

Solution:

5y + 8 = 8y – 18

By further calculation

8y – 5y = 8 + 18

So we get

3y = 26

y = 26/3 = 8 2/3

4. 6 = 7 + 2p – 5

Solution:

6 = 7 + 2p – 5

By further calculation

2p = 6 – 7 + 5

So we get

2p = 4

p = 4/2 = 2

5. 8 – 7x = 13x + 8

Solution:

8 – 7x = 13x + 8

By further calculation

13x + 7x = 8 – 8

20x = 0

x = 0/20 = 0

6. 4x – 5x + 2x = 28 + 3x

Solution:

4x – 5x + 2x = 28 + 3x

By further calculation

4x – 5x + 2x – 3x = 28

So we get

– 2x = 28

x = 28/-2 = – 14

7. 9 + m = 6m + 8 – m

Solution:

9 + m = 6m + 8 – m

By further calculation

6m – m – m = 9 – 8

4m = 1

So we get

m = 1/4

8. 24 = y + 2y + 3 + 4y

Solution:

24 = y + 2y + 3 + 4y

By further calculation

24 – 3 = 7y

21 = 7y

So we get

y = 21/7 = 3

9. 19x + 13 – 12x + 3 = 23

Solution:

19x + 13 – 12x + 3 = 23

By further calculation

7x = 23 – 16

So we get

7x = 7

x = 7/7 = 1

10. 6b + 40 = – 100 – b

Solution:

6b + 40 = – 100 – b

By further calculation

7b = – 100 – 40

7b = -140

So we get

b = -140/7 = – 20

11. 6 – 5m – 1 + 3m = 0

Solution:

6 – 5m – 1 + 3m = 0

By further calculation

5 – 2m = 0

So we get

2m = 5

m = 5/2 = 2 1/2

12. 0.4x – 1.2 = 0.3x + 0.6

Solution:

0.4x – 1.2 = 0.3x + 0.6

By further calculation

0.1x = 1.8

Multiply and divide both numerator and denominator by 10

1/10x = 18/10

By cross multiplication

x = 18/10 × 10/1 = 18

13. 6 (x + 4) = 36

Solution:

6 (x + 4) = 36

By further calculation

6x + 24 = 36

So we get

6x = 36 – 24

6x = 12

x = 12/6 = 2

14. 9 (a + 5) + 2 = 11

Solution:

9 (a + 5) + 2 = 11

By further calculation

9a + 45 + 2 = 11

So we get

9a = 11 – 47

9a = – 36

a = -36/9 = – 4

15. 4 (x – 2) = 12

Solution:

4 (x – 2) = 12

By further calculation

4x – 8 = 12

So we get

4x = 20

x = 20/4 = 5
