# Solve the Linear Equation M - (M -1)By2 = 1 - (M - 2)By3 - CBSE Class 8 - Mathematics

ConceptReducing Equations to Simpler Form

#### Question

Solve the linear equation m - (m -1)/2 = 1 - (m - 2)/3

#### Solution

m - (m -1)/2 = 1 - (m - 2)/3

L.C.M. of the denominators, 2 and 3, is 6.

Multiplying both sides by 6, we obtain

6m − 3(m − 1) = 6 − 2(m − 2)

⇒ 6m − 3m + 3 = 6 − 2m + 4 (Openingthe brackets)

⇒ 6m − 3m + 2m = 6 + 4 − 3

⇒ 5m = 7

⇒ m = 7/5

Is there an error in this question or solution?
