# Solve the Following Equation: 6(6x - 5) - 5(7x - 8) = 12(4 - X) + 1 - Mathematics

Sum

Solve the following equation:

6(6x - 5) - 5(7x - 8) = 12(4 - x) + 1

#### Solution

6(6x - 5) - 5(7x - 8) = 12(4 - x) + 1

36x - 30 - 35x + 40 = 48 - 12x + 1

⇒ x + 12x = 49 - 10

⇒ 13x = 39

⇒ x = 19/13

⇒ x = 3
