THIS IS EASY MAN

33X+38X=284 ADD VARIABLES "X"

71X=284 SIMPLIFY

X=284/71 SIMPLE DIVISION

X=4

CHECK YOURS ANSWER. IS THIS CORRECT FOR X? ASK YOURSELF

ORIGINAL EQUATION IS 33X+38X=284

PUT THE VALE OF X=4 IN THE EQUATION

33(4)+38(4)=284

132+152=284

284=284

HENCE PROVED THAT L.H.S= R.H.S

LIFT HAND SIDE = RIGHT HAND SIDE

33x+38x=284

71x=284

71x/71=284/71

x=284/71

x=4
