Student: Somanath dash

Q. Ask Question: Any topic on Maths ?5x-8=2x-9


Answer :

Somanath, Thanks for your question. 

Here is the solution with simple steps :

Topic : Algebra - Equations

Concept : Put constants on LHS and Variable on RHS and solve.

Method :

  • Given Equation 5x - 8 = 2x - 9 
  • Here variable is x so bring all variables on LHS(Left hand side)
  • And bring all variables (numbers) on RHS (Right hand side)
  • Bringing 2x on LHS we  get, 5x - 2x -8  =  - 9
  • Similarly Moving -8 to RHS, 5x - 2x  =  - 9 + 8
  • Simplifying, we get  3x  =  - 1

Hence x  =  - 1/3
