# Solve the following linear equation and so find the value of x

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
