#### Solution

$\frac{3x + 5}{2x + 7} = 4$

$\text{ or }3x + 5 = 8x + 28$

$\text{ or }8x + 28 = 3x + 5 (\text{ After cross multiplication })$

$\text{ or }8x - 3x = 5 - 28$

$\text{ or }5x = - 23$

$\text{ or }x = \frac{- 23}{5}$

$\therefore x = \frac{- 23}{5}\text{ is the solution of given equation .}$

$\text{ Check: }$

$\text{ Substituting }x = \frac{- 23}{5}\text{ in the given equation, we get: }$

$\text{ L . H . S .} = \frac{3 \times \frac{- 23}{5} + 5}{2 \times \frac{- 23}{5} + 7} = \frac{- 69 + 25}{- 46 + 35} = \frac{- 44}{- 11} = 4$

$\text{ R . H . S . }= 4$

$\therefore\text{ L . H . S . = R . H . S . for }x = \frac{- 23}{5}$
