# Solve Each of the Following Equation and Also Check Your Result in Each Case: 7 Y + 2 5 = 6 Y − 5 11 - Mathematics

Sum

Solve the following equation and also check your result:
$\frac{7y + 2}{5} = \frac{6y - 5}{11}$

#### Solution

$\frac{7y + 2}{5} = \frac{6y - 5}{11}$
$\text{ or }77y + 22 = 30y - 25$
$\text{ or }77y - 30y = - 25 - 22$
$\text{ or }47y = - 47$
$\text{ or }y = \frac{- 47}{47} = - 1$
$\text{ Verification: }$
$\text{ L . H . S . }= \frac{- 7 + 2}{5} = \frac{- 5}{5} = - 1$
$\text{ R . H . S . }= \frac{- 6 - 5}{11} = \frac{- 11}{11} = - 1$

∴  L.H.S.H.S. for y = -1
