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 = 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.
