(7x + 5)(x - 2)

Separate and simplify the common terms. 5x^2 - X^2 = 4x^2 -7x - 2x = -9x Now put these terms back together 4x^2 - 9x Or if simplified further, you get: x(4x-9)

2y - 9x = 14 2y = 14 + 9x y = (14 + 9x) / 2

The 7x and the 5x are like terms. This means that you can add them up. Think about it, 7 x's plus 5x's equals 12x's. From there, you can divide 12 from both sides of the equation, and you will get that x = 2.

Impossible!

- 7X - 2 = 24 - 9X add 9X to both sides 2X - 2 = 24 add 2 to both sides 2X = 26 divide both sides by 2 X = 13 ---------------------check in original equation - 7(13) - 2 = 24 - 9(13) - 91 - 2 = 24 - 117 - 93 = - 93 checks

2x + 5x - 1 = 9x 7x - 1 = 9x -1 = 9x - 7x -1 = 2x -1/2=x

7x = 18 - 2x 7x + 2x = 18 9x = 18 x = 2

9x2 + 7x = 2 9x2 + 7x - 2 = 0 9x2 + 9x - 2x - 2 = 0 9x(x + 1) - 2(x + 1) = 0 (9x - 2)(x + 1) = 0 x ∈ {-1, 2/9}

9x-27=7x-1 9x-7x= -1+27 26=2x x=26 / 2 therefore x=13

x = 4 9x = 7x + 8. Subtract 7x from both sides. This leaves 2x = 8. Then divide both sides by 2 to get x by itself. So, x = 4.

9x+8=7x+22 To solve for x, combine like terms. (Subtract 7x from both sides, and subtract 8 from both sides. This will give you: 2x=14 Divide both sides by 2. The answer is x=7.

6-4x = 7x-9x-2 6-4x = -2x-2 Add 4x to both sides: 6 = 2x-2 Add 2 to both sides: 8 = 2x Divide both sides by 2: 4 = x

x = 22/7

7X = -5X + 24 add 5X to each side 12X = 24 divide both sides by 12 X = 2 check 7(2) =-5(2) + 24 14 = 14

9x=2x+14 subtract 2x from both sides you have 7x = 14 left. divide each side by 7 x=2
