find the value of x (solving linear equations)

9x+5=7x+11

Answers
Collect up like terms on each side of the equation. 9x - 7x on the left and 11 - 5 on the right. That gives you 2x = 6. Divide through by 2 to give x = 3. Hey presto !

9x + 5 = 7x + 1 always try to collect up like terms on to one side. Don`t forget while doing that the value signs to be changed. It`s a rule. There fore 9x -7x = 1 -5 2x = - 4 x = - 4/2 = - 2
