Equations Solve linear equations in one variable and rational equations. 2021-03-10
Step 1: To Find
We have to solve the linear equation in one variable and rational equations.
Step 2: Explanation
If we have a linear equation $$\displaystyle\frac{{5}}{{2}}{x}+\frac{{2}}{{3}}=−\frac{{7}}{{12}}$$ then the solution
$$\displaystyle\frac{{5}}{{2}}{x}+\frac{{2}}{{3}}=-\frac{{7}}{{12}}$$
$$\displaystyle\frac{{{15}{x}+{4}}}{{6}}=-\frac{{7}}{{12}}$$
$$\displaystyle{\left({15}{x}+{4}\right)}=-\frac{{{7}\times{6}}}{{12}}$$
$$\displaystyle{\left({15}{x}+{4}\right)}=-\frac{{7}}{{2}}$$
2(15x+4)=-7
30x+8=-7
30x=-7-8
30x=-15
$$\displaystyle{x}=-\frac{{15}}{{30}}$$
$$\displaystyle{x}=-\frac{{1}}{{2}}$$

### Relevant Questions Directions: Define 2 variables, write 2 equations, and solve the system of equations.
The North Ridgeville Football team played a game against Avon last week. A total of 125 points were scored by both teams. The teams scored a total of 22 six-point touchdowns and three-point field goals. In additon, there were 4 two-point safeties and 12 one-point kids scored. How many touchdowns and field goals were scored by the teams during the game? Suppose the solutions of a homogeneous system of five linear equations in six unknowns are all multiples of one nonzero solution. Will the system necessarily have a solution for every possible choice of constants on the right sides of the equations?
