Question

Solve the following equation.

5(x − 3) = 3(x + 2)

Solution

5(x − 3) = 3(x + 2)

⇒ 5x - 15 = 3x + 6\

Adding 15 to both sides

⇒ 5x - 15 + 15 = 3x + 6 + 15

⇒ 5x = 3x + 21

Subtracting 3x from both sides

⇒ 5x - 3x = 3x + 21 - 3x

⇒ 2x = 21

Dividing both sides by 2

⇒ `(2"x")/2 = 21/2`

⇒ x = `21/2`

Hence, x = `21/2` is the solution of the equation.

  Is there an error in this question or solution?
