# Solve and Check Result: 3m = 5m - 8by5 - CBSE Class 8 - Mathematics

ConceptSolving Equations Having the Variable on Both Sides

#### 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?
