# Solve: (4-3"X")/5 + (7 - "X")/3 + 4 1/3 = 0 Hence, Find the Value of 'P', If 3p - 2x + 1 = 0 - Mathematics

Sum

Solve: (4-3"x")/5 + (7 - "x")/3 + 4 1/3 = 0 Hence, find the value of 'p', if 3p - 2x + 1 = 0

#### Solution

=> (4-3"x")/5 + (7 - "x")/3 + 4 1/3 = 0

=> (4-3"x")/5 + (7 - "x")/3 +  13/3 = 0

(12 - 9"x" + 35 - 5"x" + 65 = 0)/15  ...(L.C.M. of 5, 3, 3 = 15)

-14x + 112 = 0

⇒ -14x = -112

⇒ x = (-112)/-14 = 8

Hence x = 8

Now, 3p – 2x + 1=0

⇒ 3p – 2 x 8 + 1 = 0

⇒ 3p – 16 + 1 =0

⇒ 3p – 15 = 0.

⇒ 3p=15

⇒ p = 5
