  1. Solve each equation below for x. Show all of your work. (Assume denominators of zero are already excluded.) Homework Help ✎

    1. cxa = b

    2. b2 = c

    3. (xa)(xb) = 0

    4. ax3acx2 = 0

    5. + a = b

x = ab2 + ac

x = a, b

Factor and use the Zero Product Property.

Multiply both sides by the common denominator, c(a + b).

Subtract a from both sides and then multiply both sides by x3.
Isolate and solve for x.
