Q:
# What is the value of x in the equation 1.5(x + 4) β 3 = 4.5(x β 2)?

Accepted Solution

A:

Hi there!

The Eqn. is :-

1.5 (x + 4) - 3 = 4.5 (x - 2)

1.5x + 6 - 3 = 4.5x - 9

Combining the like terms :-

1.5x - 4.5x = - 9 - 6 + 3

- 3x = - 15 + 3

- 3x = - 12

x = [tex]\dfrac {- 12}{- 3}[/tex]

x = 4

Hence, the required answer is β x = 4

~ Hope it helps!
