# Solve the Following Equation and Verify Your Answer: 2 Y + 5 Y + 4 = 1 - Mathematics

Course
ConceptIntroduction of Linear Equation

#### Question

$\frac{2y + 5}{y + 4} = 1$

#### Solution

$\frac{2y + 5}{y + 4} = 1$

$\text{ or }2y + 5 = y + 4$

$\text{ or }2y - y = 4 - 5$

$\text{ or }y = - 1$

$\text{ Thus, } y = - 1\text{ is the solution of the given equation . }$

$\text{ Check: }$

$\text{ Substituting }y = - 1 \text{ in the given equation, we get: }$

$\text{ L . H . S . }= \frac{2( - 1) + 5}{- 1 + 4} = \frac{- 2 + 5}{3} = \frac{3}{3} = 1$

$\text{ R . H . S . }= 1$

$\therefore\text{ L . H . S . = R . H . S . for }y = - 1 .$

Is there an error in this question or solution?
