    The questions are as follows:

    1. Solve the following linear equation and so find the value of x:
    3x + 4 = 5x - 10

    2. Solve the following pair of simultaneous equations using either the method of elimination or substitution:
    (i) 5x = -3y + 11
    (ii) y = 4x - 19

    3. Determine whether the solution (given in square brackets) satisfies the following simultaneous equations:
    (i) -7x = 2y + 3
    (ii) 5x = -y - 12 [x = -7 and y = 23]

    4. Simplify the following subtraction so that involves only one algebraic fraction
    5x 3y
    __ - __

    2z 5x
