1.) x+y-2(2x-3y)

2.) x+y/2 - 3x-y/4 + x-5y/8

3.) 4x- {3x-[(x-3)-2(x-5)]}

4.) a+5b/2 + a-3b/3 - 5(a-b)/6

5.) 2x-5=3x-9

6.) 3x-(2x-7)=2x+3

7.) 7x+2/6 - x-4/3 = x+3/3

8.) 3x-2(x-3)+3(5-2x)

9.) x+1/3 - x-2/4 - x/6

10) 5(2x-5)=3(2x-11)

11) 0.5x+3=1.2x+5.8

**Reiny**, Tuesday, February 19, 2013 at 10:03amIf you are studying this topic, surely you can't be having problems with every one of them.

Can you tell us where you are having problems ?

I will do the 1st of the age problems:

present time:

Bala --- x

Ahmad -- x+7

Four years ago:

Bala --- x-4

Ahmad -- x+7 - 4 = x+3

At that time "Ahmad was twice as old as Bala"

---> x+3 = 2(x-4)

x+3 = 2x-8

-x = -11

x = 11

so right now, Bala is 11 and Ahmad is 18

in 7 yrs from now:

Bala will be 18 and Ahmad will be 25

Set up the second one in a similar way.
