# Solve the following equation and check your result.Q.3     5x + 9 = 5 + 3x

We have

5x + 9 = 5 + 3x

Transposing 3x to the LHS and 9 to the RHS, we get:

5x - 3x = 5 - 9

or                      2x = -4

Dividing both sides by 2 :

x = -2

Check :-    Put x = - 2 in both LHS and RHS

LHS :-  5x + 9 = 5(-2) + 9 =  -10 + 9 = -1

RHS :-  5 + 3x = 5 + 3(-2) = 5 - 6 = -1

Hence,                 LHS = RHS

5x-3x+9=5

2x+9=5

2x=5-9

2x=-4

x= -2

hence the value of x is -2
