11-41.
1. Solve each equation below for x. Show all of your work. (Your answers will contain the variables a, b, and/or c.) Homework Help ✎

1. cx − a = b

2. (xa)(xb) = 0

3. ax 2acx = 0

$x = \frac{a + b}{c}$

x = a or x = b

Multiply both sides by c(a + b).

x = ab + ac

Factor and use the Zero Product Property.

Subtract a from both sides and take the reciprocal of both sides.
