User: solve for x 2x + 3(4 - x) = 3x + 2

Weegy: Here's the solution:3x - 5 < 4 ; x < (4+5)/3 ; x < 3 Answer x< 3. [smile]

User: solvel for x x2 - 3x - 4 = 0

Weegy: x2 - 3x - 7 = 0

x = 1/2 (3-sqrt(37))
x = 1/2 (3+sqrt(37))


User: solve for x: x2 - 3x - 4 = 0

Weegy: Here's the solution:3x - 5 < 4 ; x < (4+5)/3 ; x < 3 Answer x< 3. [smile]

One number is 8 more than another number. Let x be one number, the other is x + 8. If the sum of the smaller number and twice the larger number is 46, then: x + 2(x + 8) = 46, x + 2x + 16 = 46, 3x = 46 - 16 = 30, x = 30/3 = 10. The two numbers are 10 and 18 respectively.

3x - (1/2) = 2x + (7/4)
3x - 2x = (7/4) + (1/2)
x = 9/4 = 2 1/4

2x + 3(4 - x) = 3x + 2
2x + 12 - 3x = 3x + 2
-x + 12 = 3x + 2
-x - 3x = 2 - 12
-4x = -10
x = -10/-4 = 2.5

x^2 - 3x - 4 = 0
(x - 4)(x + 1) = 0
x = 4 or x = -1
