x/3 = 5/8;

8x = 3 * 5;

8x = 15;

x = 15/8

8x = 3 * 5;

8x = 15;

x = 15/8

The solution set of |R - 3| = 10 is **Weegy:** (a + 3)(a - 2) = a^2 - 2a + 3a - 6; = a^2 + a - 6 **User:** Simplify |-5 - 3| + (-8) **User:** Simplify 9 + (-2) 3 (More)

The solution set of |R - 3| = 10 is R = -7 or R = 13.

When R - 3 > 0,

R - 3 = 10;

R = 10 + 3;

R = 13;

When R < 0;

-(R - 3) = 10;

3 - R = 10;

R = 3 - 10;

R = -7

When R - 3 > 0,

R - 3 = 10;

R = 10 + 3;

R = 13;

When R < 0;

-(R - 3) = 10;

3 - R = 10;

R = 3 - 10;

R = -7

|-5 - 3| + (-8);

= |-8| - 8;

= 8 - 8;

= 0

= |-8| - 8;

= 8 - 8;

= 0
