Find the Value of $x$ if $3(x-5)=-2(4-x)$


Given: $3(x-5)=-2(4-x)$


To do:  Find the Value of $x$ 


Solution:

$3 (x - 5)$  

Multiply 3 inside the brackets,

$3 x  -  15$

$-2 (4-x)$

Multiply -2 inside the brackets,

$- 8 +  2 x$

now, equate both the terms,

$3 x - 15  =  -8 + 2 x$

$3 x - 2 x   = - 8 + 15$     [bring variables on one side, and numbers on the other side]

 $x     =   7$

 

Therefore, the value of $x$ is 7
