8-53.

Solve the following equations for $x$.

1. $4x−6y=20$

Your answer will be an equation with $y$ in it.

1. $\frac{1}{2}(x−6)=9$

Try multiplying both sides of the equation by $2$ first.

1. $\frac{4}{5}+\frac{18}{x}=8$

Multiply both sides of the equation by the common denominator.

$x = 2.5$

1. $2 +| 2 x - 3 |= 5$

Start by subtracting $2$ from both sides. Then remember that equations with absolute value usually have two solutions.

$x = 3 \text{ or } 0$
