User: Solve the equation. 6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x A. 2/3 B. 3 1/3 C. - 2/3 D. -3 1/3

Weegy: -3 -3 Divide each term in the inequality by 3. (3(5x-16))/(3)>-(3)/(3) Simplify the left-hand side of the inequality by canceling the common factors. 5x-16>-(3)/(3) Simplify the right-hand side of the inequality by simplifying each [ term. 5x-16>-1 Since -16 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the inequality by adding 16 to both sides. 5x>16-1 Subtract 1 from 16 to get 15. 5x>15 Divide each term in the inequality by 5. (5x)/(5)>(15)/(5) Simplify the left-hand side of the inequality by canceling the common factors. x>(15)/(5) Simplify the right-hand side of the inequality by simplifying each term. x>3 c. x > 3 is the answer. ]

6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x
6 = 2x + 16 - 5x
3x = 16- 6 = 10
x = 10/3 = 3 1/3
The solution for the equation 6 = 2(x + 8) - 5x is B. 3 1/3

x - 9 = -6x + 5
x + 6x = 5 + 9
7x = 14
x = 14/7 = 2
The solution for the equation. x - 9 = -6x + 5 is C. 2

We replace y (= 4 + 1/3x) in the equation -1/3x + y = –1 we can get
-1/3x + 4 + 1/3x = –1
Simplify the equation we get 5 = 0
We all know that 5 could never be equal to 0
That is to say, there is no solution for -1/3x + y = –1 and y = 4 + 1/3x
