If: 5-3x = x+1 then the value of x = 1

2x+5=3x+1 -x=-4 x=4

3x + 1 = -14 -1 -1 ___________ 3x = -15 divide both sides by 3: x = -5

3x-5=3x+5 There is no solution.

5*2-3x-1 = 0 10-3x-1 = 0 -3x = 1-10 -3x = -9 x = 3

- 7/5

3x + 2 + 2x = 7; 3x + 2x = 5x, so 5x + 2 = 7; 7-2=5, so 5x=5. 5x divided by 5 and 5 divided by 5 equals 1, so x equals 1.
