## anonymous 3 years ago Determine whether 7 is a solution of the equation 5x+7=40

1. anonymous

Solution means Plug x=7 in the eq...and the eq must satisfy...

2. ParthKohli

For that, check if $$\rm 5\cdot7+7 = 40$$

3. anonymous

i mean 5*7 + 7 not equal 40

4. anonymous

or solve for x and compare it to 7

5. anonymous

so..7 is not a Sol^n

6. anonymous

its not a solution because it doesnt equal too that number
