5-81.

Solve the equations below, if possible. If there is no solution, explain why. Homework Help ✎

1. $\frac { 8 - x } { x } = \frac { 3 } { 2 }$

Multiply both sides by the common denominator of $2x$.
This results in the equation: $2(8-x)=3x$

1. $-2(5x-1)-3=-10x$

There is no solution for part (b). Try to solve algebraically to show why.

1. $x^2+8x-33=0$

Factor this equation to find the solutions.

1. $\frac{2}{3}x-12=180$
