# Solve the Following Equations. - SSC (English Medium) Class 8 - Mathematics

ConceptSolution of Equations in One Variable

#### Question

Solve the following equation.

"y"/7 + "(y-4)/3 = 2

#### Solution

"y"/7 + "(y-4)/3 = 2

Multiplying both sides by 21

⇒ 21 ("y"/7) + 21 ("y" - 4/3) = 2 x 21

⇒ 3 ("y") + 7 ("y" - 4) = 42

⇒ 3y + 7y - 28 = 42

⇒ 10y - 28 = 42

⇒ 10y - 28 + 28 = 42 + 28

⇒ 10y = 70

Dividing both sides by 10

⇒ (10"y")/10 = 70/10

⇒ y = 7

Hence, y = 7 is the solution of the equation.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
