Grade 8 - Mathematics
1.5 Equations With Fractional Coefficients - II

Example: Solve the equation 5x/3 + 7/2 = 4.
Solution:
L.C.M. of denominators 3 and 2 is 6.
Multiplying both sides of the equation by 6 we get,
6*5x/3 + 6*7/2 = 6*4.
10x+21 = 24
10x = 24-21
10x = 3
x = 3/10

Verification:
Substitute x = 3/10 in the equation.
L.H.S.5x/3 + 7/2 = 5/3*3/10 + 7/2 = 1/2 + 7/2
(1+7)/2 = 8/2 = 4 = R.H.S.
\ x = 3/10 is the solution.
