Solve 7x - 4 = 5x + 15 for x.
**Weegy:** D.{x | x **User:** Solve |x|>5
{-5, 5}
{x|-5 5} **Weegy:** The answer is x=-10..
Solution. x/2 = -5... Multiply both sides by 2 and we get the value of x which is negative 10. **User:** Solve |2x + 1| = 10
**Weegy:** 3(2x + 1) = 3 6x + 3 = 3 6x = 3 - 3 6x = 0 x = 0 (More)

7x - 4 = 5x + 15

7x - 5x = 15 + 4

2x = 19

x = 19/2 = 9.5

7x - 5x = 15 + 4

2x = 19

x = 19/2 = 9.5

|2x + 1| = 10

2x + 1 = 10 or 2x + 1 = -10

2x = 9 or 2x = -11

x = 9/2 or x = -11/2

2x + 1 = 10 or 2x + 1 = -10

2x = 9 or 2x = -11

x = 9/2 or x = -11/2

Find the slope of the line whose equation is 6x - 3y = 12.
**Weegy:** The answer would be y = 2 (x+2). **User:** px + qy = r
2px - qy = 2r
When solving this system of equations, x =
**Weegy:** If r = px + qy and 2px - qy = 2r
then..
2px - qy = 2 (px + qy)
2px - qy = 2px + 2qy
- > - qy = 2qy
- - > qy = 0
If qy = 0 then 2px = 2r and px = r **User:** 3x + 2y = 4
2x - y = 5

is coincident. **User:** John made a rectangle pen for his dog using 28 feet of fencing. If the width of the pen is 2 feet more than one-half the length, what is the length and width of the pen?
The length of the pen is
**Weegy:** The length of the pen is 6 feet **User:** Find the slope of the line whose equation is 2x - 3y + 6 = 0.
**Weegy:** The slope of the perpendicular line would be 3/2. **User:** One number is 6 more than twice another. If their sum is 51, find the numbers.

**User:** One number is 6 more than twice another. If their sum is 51, find the numbers.
Which of the following systems of equations represents the word problem?
y = 2x + 6 and y = x + 51
y = 2x + 6 and x + y = 51
y = 2(x + 6) and x + y = 51 **Weegy:** This is an easy mathematical problem. In order to find the slope and the Y intercept of the equation all you need to do is bring the equation in the general form, y = mx + c. It will become y = 2x - 5. [ [ In this case as we can see 2 is the slope and -5 is the y intercept. ] ] **User:** 2x - y = 10
y = -x - 1

px + qy = r

2px - qy = 2r

adding up the above equations the result is:

3px = 3r

px = r

x = r/p

px + qy = r 2px - qy = 2r When solving this system of equations, x = r/p.

2px - qy = 2r

adding up the above equations the result is:

3px = 3r

px = r

x = r/p

px + qy = r 2px - qy = 2r When solving this system of equations, x = r/p.

3x + 2y = 4 (equation 1)

2x - y = 5 multiple 2 on both sides:

4x - 2y = 10 (equation 2)

adding up equation 1 and 2 the result is:

7x = 14

x = 2,

y = 2x - 5 = 4 - 5 = -1

The only one solution for the system 3x + 2y = 4 2x - y = 5 is (2, -1)

2x - y = 5 multiple 2 on both sides:

4x - 2y = 10 (equation 2)

adding up equation 1 and 2 the result is:

7x = 14

x = 2,

y = 2x - 5 = 4 - 5 = -1

The only one solution for the system 3x + 2y = 4 2x - y = 5 is (2, -1)
