Question

# 15x−30=99x+10 Which of the following is the solution to the equation shown above ?x=1021x=−1021x=2110x=−2110

Solution

## The correct option is B x=−1021Solution to an equation is a value for the variables (in this case x) that makes the equation true. Let’s find an equivalent equation by first subtracting 99x from both sides, then adding 30 15x−30−99x=99x−99x+10 −84x−30=10+30 −84x=−40 x=−4084 =−1021 The solution is x=−1021 Hence, the correct answer is option B
