# Solve Each of the Following Equation and Also Verify Your Solution: X 2 + X 8 = 1 8 - Mathematics

Sum

Solve the following equation and also verify your solution:

$\frac{x}{2} + \frac{x}{8} = \frac{1}{8}$

#### Solution

$\frac{x}{2} + \frac{x}{8} = \frac{1}{8}$
$\text{ or }\frac{4x + x}{8} = \frac{1}{8}$
$\text{ or }\frac{5x}{8} = \frac{1}{8}$
$\text{ or }x = \frac{1}{8} \times \frac{8}{5} = \frac{1}{5}$
$\text{ Verification: }$
$L . H . S . = \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{1}{5} + \frac{1}{8} \times \frac{1}{5} = \frac{1}{10} + \frac{1}{40} = \frac{5}{40} = \frac{1}{8} = R . H . S .$
