# Solve the Following Equations. - Mathematics

Sum

Solve the following equation.

(9"x")/8 + 1 = 10

#### Solution

(9"x")/8 + 1 = 10

Multiplying both sides by 8

⇒ (9"x")/8 x 8 + 1 x 8 = 10 x 8

⇒ 9x + 8 = 80

Substacting 8 from both sides

⇒ 9x + 8 - 8 = 80 - 8

⇒ 9x = 72

Dividing both sides by 9

⇒ (9"x")/9 = 72/9

⇒ x = 8

Hence, x = 8 is the solution of the equation.
