Simplify 1/5x to x/5 x/5+3(x−2)=26 2 Multiply both sides by 5 x+15(x−2)=130 3 Expand x+15x−30=130 4 Simplify x+15x−30 to 16x−30 16x−30=130 5 Add 30 to both sides 16x=130+30 6 Simplify 130+30 to 160 16x=160 7 Divide both sides by 16 x=160/16 8 Simplify 160/16 to 10 x=10

3 + 1/5 = 3/1 + 1/5 = 15/5 + 1/5 = 16/5

Now multiply both sides by 5/16 and you are done :-)

Check if x=10 is the solution in the original equation.

  • skullpatrol
1/5x + 3(x-2) = 26 x=10 1/5(10) + 3(10-2) =?= 26 2 + 3(8) 26 = 26
