Let us verify the given equation now,

(7x-1)/4 â€“ 1/3(2x â€“ (1-x)/2) = 10/3

By substituting the value of â€˜xâ€™ we get,

(7x-1)/4 â€“ (5x-1)/6 = 10/3

(7(41/11)-1)/4 â€“ (5(41/11)-1)/6 = 10/3

(287/11 – 1)/4 â€“ (205/11 – 1)/6 = 10/3

(287-11)/44 â€“ (205-11)/66 = 10/3

276/44 â€“ 194/66 = 10/3

69/11 â€“ 97/33 = 10/3

((69Ã—3) â€“ (97Ã—1))/33 = 10/3

(207 â€“ 97)/33 = 10/3

110/33 = 10/3

10/3 = 10/3

Hence, the given equation is verified

**22. 0.5(x-0.4)/0.35 â€“ 0.6(x-2.71)/0.42 = x + 6.1**

**Solution:**

0.5(x-0.4)/0.35 â€“ 0.6(x-2.71)/0.42 = x + 6.1

Let us simplify

(0.5/0.35)(x â€“ 0.4) â€“ (0.6/0.42)(x â€“ 2.71) = x + 6.1

(x â€“ 0.4)/0.7 â€“ (x â€“ 2.71)/0.7 = x + 6.1

(x â€“ 0.4 â€“ x + 2.71)/0.7 = x + 6.1

-0.4 + 2.71 = 0.7(x + 6.1)

0.7x = 2.71 â€“ 0.4 â€“ 4.27

= -1.96

x = -1.96/0.7

= -2.8

Let us verify the given equation now,

0.5(x-0.4)/0.35 â€“ 0.6(x-2.71)/0.42 = x + 6.1

By substituting the value of â€˜xâ€™ we get,

0.5(-2.8 â€“ 0.4)/0.35 â€“ 0.6(-2.8 â€“ 2.71)/0.42 = -2.8 + 6.1

-1.6/0.35 + 3.306/0.42 = 3.3

-4.571 + 7.871 = 3.3

3.3 = 3.3

Hence, the given equation is verified

**23. 6.5x + (19.5x â€“ 32.5)/2 = 6.5x + 13 + (13x – 26)/2**

**Solution:**

6.5x + (19.5x â€“ 32.5)/2 = 6.5x + 13 + (13x – 26)/2

By rearranging

6.5x + (19.5x â€“ 32.5)/2 – 6.5x – (13x – 26)/2 = 13

(19.5x â€“ 32.5)/2 – (13x – 26)/2 = 13

(19.5x â€“ 32.5 â€“ 13x + 26)/2 = 13

(6.5x â€“ 6.5)/2 = 13

6.5x â€“ 6.5 = 13Ã—2

6.5x â€“ 6.5 = 26

6.5x = 26+6.5

6.5x = 32.5

x = 32.5/6.5

= 5

Let us verify the given equation now,

6.5x + (19.5x â€“ 32.5)/2 = 6.5x + 13 + (13x – 26)/2

By substituting the value of â€˜xâ€™ we get,

6.5(5) + (19.5(5) â€“ 32.5)/2 = 6.5(5) + 13 + (13(5) – 26)/2

32.5 + (97.5 â€“ 32.5)/2 = 32.5 + 13 + (65 – 26)/2

32.5 + 65/2 = 45.5 + 39/2

(65 + 65)/2 = (91+39)/2

130/2 = 130/2

65 = 65

Hence, the given equation is verified

**24. (3x – 8) (3x + 2) â€“ (4x – 11) (2x + 1) = (x – 3) (x + 7)**

**Solution:**

(3x – 8) (3x + 2) â€“ (4x – 11) (2x + 1) = (x – 3) (x + 7)

Let us simplify

9x^{2} + 6x â€“ 24x â€“ 16 â€“ 8x^{2} â€“ 4x + 22x + 11 = x^{2} + 7x â€“ 3x â€“ 21

9x^{2} + 6x â€“ 24x â€“ 16 â€“ 8x^{2} â€“ 4x + 22x + 11 – x^{2} – 7x + 3x + 21 = 0

9x^{2} – 8x^{2} â€“ x^{2} + 6x â€“ 24x â€“ 4x + 22x â€“ 7x + 3x â€“ 16 + 21 + 11 = 0

-4x + 16 = 0

-4x = -16

x = 4

Let us verify the given equation now,

(3x – 8) (3x + 2) â€“ (4x – 11) (2x + 1) = (x – 3) (x + 7)

By substituting the value of â€˜xâ€™ we get,

(3(4) – 8) (3(4) + 2) â€“ (4(4) – 11) (2(4) + 1) = (4 – 3) (4 + 7)

(12-8) (12+2) â€“ (16-11) (8+1) = 1(11)

4 (14) â€“ 5(9) = 11

56 â€“ 45 = 11

11 = 11

Hence, the given equation is verified

**25. [(2x+3) + (x+5)] ^{2} + [(2x+3) â€“ (x+5)]^{2} = 10x^{2} + 92**

^{2}= 10x

^{2}+ 92

By using the formula (a+b)^{2}

9x^{2} + 48x + 64 + x^{2} â€“ 4x + 4 = 10x^{2} + 92

By rearranging

9x^{2} â€“ 10x^{2} + x^{2} + 48x â€“ 4x = 92 â€“ 64 â€“ 4

44x = 24

x = 24/44

= 6/11

Let us verify the given equation now,

[(2x+3) + (x+5)]^{2}+ [(2x+3) â€“ (x+5)]

^{2}= 10x

^{2}+ 92

By substituting the value of â€˜xâ€™ we get,

[2(6/11) + 3 + (6/11) + 5]^{2}+ [2(6/11) + 3 â€“ (6/11) – 5]

^{2}= 10(6/11)

^{2}+ 92 [(12/11 + 3) + (6/11 + 5)]

^{2}+ [(12/11 + 3) â€“ (6/11 + 5)]

^{2}= 10(6/11)

^{2}+ 92 [(12+33)/11 + (6+55)/11]

^{2}+ [(12+33)/11- (6+55)/11]

^{2}= 10(6/11)

^{2}+ 92 [(45/11)+ (61/11)]

^{2}+ [(45/11) â€“ (61/11)]

^{2}= 360/121 + 92

(106/11)^{2} + (-16/11)^{2} = (360 + 11132)/121

11236/121 + 256/121 = 11492/121

11492/121 = 11492/121

Hence, the given equation is verified
