Find the value of x in the equation 2(x – 3) + 5x = 5(2x + 6).
A. –12
B. 12
C. –2
D. 2 **Weegy:**
2(x – 3) + 5x = 5(2x + 6);
2x - 6 + 5x = 10x + 30 ;
7x - 6 = 10x + 30 ;
7x - 10x = 30 + 6 ;
-3x = 36 ;
x = 36/-3 ;
x = -12

6.2n – 3.7n = 85 + 45

2.5n = 130

n = 130/2.5

n = 52

2.5n = 130

n = 130/2.5

n = 52

Factory A has 4 times as many workers as Factory B. Factory A has 1,160 workers. Factory B has **290** workers.

1,160/4 = 290

1,160/4 = 290

Solve the system of equations 3y + 2z = 12 and y – z = 9.
A. y = 6, z = 15
B. y = –6, z = 15
C. y = 6, z = –3
D. y = 24, z = 15

Question

1 Answer/Comment

3y + 2z = 12

y – z = 9

y = z + 9

3(z + 9) + 2z = 12

3z + 27 + 2z = 12

5z + 27 = 12

5z = 12 - 27

5z = -15

z = -15/5

z = -3

y - (-3) = 9

y + 3 = 9

y = 9 - 3

y = 6

Solution set: y = 6, z = -3

y – z = 9

y = z + 9

3(z + 9) + 2z = 12

3z + 27 + 2z = 12

5z + 27 = 12

5z = 12 - 27

5z = -15

z = -15/5

z = -3

y - (-3) = 9

y + 3 = 9

y = 9 - 3

y = 6

Solution set: y = 6, z = -3

Solve the system of equations 2x + 3y = 40 and –2x + 2y = 20.
A. x = –10, y = 20
B. x = 10, y = 20
C. x = 2, y = 12
D. x = –6, y = 4

2x + 3y = 40

–2x + 2y = 20

(2x + 3y = 40) + (–2x + 2y = 20)

5y = 60

y = 60/5

y = 12

2x + 3(12) = 40

2x + 36 = 40

2x = 40 - 36

2x = 4

x = 4/2

x = 2

Solution set: x = 2, y = 12

–2x + 2y = 20

(2x + 3y = 40) + (–2x + 2y = 20)

5y = 60

y = 60/5

y = 12

2x + 3(12) = 40

2x + 36 = 40

2x = 40 - 36

2x = 4

x = 4/2

x = 2

Solution set: x = 2, y = 12
