Solve the following linear equations.

1. x/2 â€“ 1/5 = x/3 + Â¼

Solution:

x/2 â€“ 1/5 = x/3 + Â¼

â‡’ x/2 â€“ x/3 = Â¼+ 1/5

â‡’ (3x â€“ 2x)/6 = (5 + 4)/20

â‡’ 3x â€“ 2x = 9/20 Ã— 6

â‡’ x = 54/20

â‡’ x = 27/10

2. n/2 â€“ 3n/4 + 5n/6 = 21

Solution:

n/2 â€“ 3n/4 + 5n/6 = 21

â‡’ (6n â€“ 9n + 10n)/12 = 21

â‡’ 7n/12 = 21

â‡’ 7n = 21 Ã— 12

â‡’ n = 252/7

â‡’ n = 36

3. x + 7 â€“ 8x/3 = 17/6 â€“ 5x/2

Solution:

x + 7 â€“ 8x/3 = 17/6 â€“ 5x/2

â‡’ x â€“ 8x/3 + 5x/2 = 17/6 â€“ 7

â‡’ (6x â€“ 16x + 15x)/6 = (17 â€“ 42)/6

â‡’ 5x/6 = â€“ 25/6

â‡’ 5x = â€“ 25

â‡’ x = â€“ 5

4. (x â€“ 5)/3 = (x â€“ 3)/5

Solution:

(x â€“ 5)/3 = (x â€“ 3)/5

â‡’ 5(x-5) = 3(x-3)

â‡’ 5x-25 = 3x-9

â‡’ 5x â€“ 3x = -9+25

â‡’ 2x = 16

â‡’ x = 8

5. (3t â€“ 2)/4 â€“ (2t + 3)/3 = 2/3 â€“ t

Solution:

(3t â€“ 2)/4 â€“ (2t + 3)/3 = 2/3 â€“ t

â‡’ ((3t â€“ 2)/4) Ã— 12 â€“ ((2t + 3)/3) Ã— 12

â‡’ (3t â€“ 2) Ã— 3 â€“ (2t + 3) Ã— 4 = 2 Ã— 4 â€“ 12t

â‡’ 9t â€“ 6 â€“ 8t â€“ 12 = 8 â€“ 12t

â‡’ 9t â€“ 6 â€“ 8t â€“ 12 = 8 â€“ 12t

â‡’ t â€“ 18 = 8 â€“ 12t

â‡’ t + 12t = 8 + 18

â‡’ 13t = 26

â‡’ t = 2

6. m â€“ (m â€“ 1)/2 = 1 â€“ (m â€“ 2)/3

Solution:

m â€“ (m â€“ 1)/2 = 1 â€“ (m â€“ 2)/3

â‡’ m â€“ m/2 â€“ 1/2 = 1 â€“ (m/3 â€“ 2/3)

â‡’ m â€“ m/2 + Â½ = 1 â€“ m/3 + 2/3

â‡’ m â€“ m/2 + m/3 = 1 + 2/3 â€“ Â½

â‡’ m/2 + m/3 = Â½ + 2/3

â‡’ (3m + 2m)/6 = (3 + 4)/6

â‡’ 5m/6 = 7/6

â‡’ m = 7/6 Ã— 6/5

â‡’ m = 7/5

Simplify and solve the following linear equations.

7. 3(t â€“ 3) = 5(2t + 1)

Solution:

3(t â€“ 3) = 5(2t + 1)

â‡’ 3t â€“ 9 = 10t + 5

â‡’ 3t â€“ 10t = 5 + 9

â‡’ -7t = 14

â‡’ t = 14/-7

â‡’ t = -2

8. 8. 15(y â€“ 4) â€“2(y â€“ 9) + 5(y + 6) = 0

Solution:

15(y â€“ 4) â€“2(y â€“ 9) + 5(y + 6) = 0

â‡’ 15y â€“ 60 -2y + 18 + 5y + 30 = 0

â‡’ 15y â€“ 2y + 5y = 60 â€“ 18 â€“ 30

â‡’ 18y = 12

â‡’ y = 12/18

â‡’ y = 2/3

9. 3(5z â€“ 7) â€“ 2(9z â€“ 11) = 4(8z â€“ 13) â€“ 17

Solution:

3(5z â€“ 7) â€“ 2(9z â€“ 11) = 4(8z â€“ 13) â€“ 17

â‡’ 15z â€“ 21 â€“ 18z + 22 = 32z â€“ 52 â€“ 17

â‡’ 15z â€“ 18z â€“ 32z = -52 â€“ 17 + 21 â€“ 22

â‡’ -35z = -70

â‡’ z = -70/-35

â‡’ z = 2

10. 0.25(4f â€“ 3) = 0.05(10f â€“ 9)

Solution:

0.25(4f â€“ 3) = 0.05(10f â€“ 9)

â‡’ f â€“ 0.75 = 0.5f â€“ 0.45

â‡’ f â€“ 0.5f = -0.45 + 0.75

â‡’ 0.5f = 0.30

â‡’ f = 0.30/0.5

â‡’ f = 3/5

â‡’ f = 0.6
