Solve Each of the Following Equation and Also Verify Your Solution: 5 X 3 + 2 5 = 1 - Mathematics

Sum

Solve the following equation and also verify your solution:
$\frac{5x}{3} + \frac{2}{5} = 1$

Solution

$\frac{5x}{3} + \frac{2}{5} = 1$
$\Rightarrow \frac{5x}{3} = 1 - \frac{2}{5}$
$\Rightarrow \frac{5x}{3} = \frac{3}{5}$
$\Rightarrow x = \frac{3}{5} \times \frac{3}{5} = \frac{9}{25}$
$\text{ Verification: }$
$L . H . S . = \frac{5}{3} \times \frac{9}{25} + \frac{2}{5} = \frac{3}{5} + \frac{2}{5} = 1$
$R . H . S . = 1$
$\therefore L . H . S . = R . H . S .\text{ for }x = \frac{9}{25}$
