    1.) x - x = 5
    2 3

    2.) 0.5b + 3.4 = 0.2b + 12.4

    3.) -3 - 4(t - 5) = 2(t + 3) +11

    4.) 0.08x + 0.5(x + 100) = 73.2

    5.) Raising rabbits. Before Roland sold two female rabbits,
    half of his rabbits were female. After the sale, only onethird
    of his rabbits were female. If x represents his original
    number of rabbits, then

    1 x - 2 = 1 (x - 2)
    2 3

    Solve this equation to find the number of rabbits that he had before the sale.

    so

    1.) x - x = 5
    2 3
    First we get the LCD( least common denominator) of 2 and 3 which is 2*3=6
    Therefore we multiply first fraction by 3 and second by 4 and get:

    3x - 2 x = 5
    6 6
    So x =5
    6
    Therefore x= 5*6=30

    2.) 0.5b + 3.4 = 0.2b + 12.4
    -0.2b -3.4 -0.2 b-3.4

    0.3 b ...
