Course
ConceptIntroduction of Linear Equation

#### Question

Solve the following equation and also verify your solution:
$\frac{2x}{3} - \frac{3x}{8} = \frac{7}{12}$

#### Solution

$\frac{2x}{3} - \frac{3x}{8} = \frac{7}{12}$
$\text{ or }\frac{16x - 9x}{24} = \frac{7}{12}$
$\text{ or }\frac{7x}{24} = \frac{7}{12}$
$\text{ or }x = \frac{7}{12} \times \frac{24}{7} = 2$
$\text{ Verification: }$
$L . H . S . = \frac{4}{3} - \frac{6}{8} = \frac{32 - 18}{24} = \frac{7}{12}$
$R . H . S . = \frac{7}{12}$
$\therefore R . H . S . = L . H . S . \text{ for }x = 2$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
