Question

Solve and check result: `3m = 5m - 8/5`

Solution

`3m = 5m - 8/5`

Transposing 5m to L.H.S, we obtain

`3m - 5m = - 8/5`

`-2m = - 8/5`

Dividing both sides by −2, we obtain

`m = 4/5`

L.H.S = `3m = 3 xx 4/5  = 12/5`

R.H.S = `5m - 8/5 = 5 xx 4/5 - 8/5 = 12/5`

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

Hence, the result obtained above is correct.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
