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

ConceptSolution of Equations in One Variable

#### Question

Solve the following equation.

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

#### Solution

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

Multiplying both sides by 3

⇒ 3 (("y" - 4)/3) + 3 (3"y") = 4 xx 3

⇒ y - 4 + 9y = 12

⇒ 10y - 4 = 12

Adding 4 to both sides

⇒ 10y - 4 + 4 = 12 + 4

⇒ 10y = 16

Dividing both sides by 10

⇒ (10"y")/10 = 16/10

⇒ y = 8/5

Hence, y = 8/5 is the solution of the equation.

Is there an error in this question or solution?
