x/9 +3 = 8 - x/3 Solve?????? First, get rid of the fractions to make the equation easier to solve for x. Let's multiply every term by 9: 9 [x/9 + 3 = 8 - x/3] x + 27 = 72 - 3x 4x = 45 x = 45/4 Substitute 45/4 for x in the original equation to check. It always helps to check ...

**How do I do this.?(Math.)**

Use the Substitution method to solve the system of equations. y - 2x = -5 3y - x = 5 Solve one of the equations for x or y. Let's solve the first one for y: y - 2x = -5 y = 2x - 5 Now let's substitute 2x - 5 for y in the second equation to solve for x: 3(2x - 5) - x = 5 6x - ...
