Solve each equation below for x. Show all of your work. (Your answers will contain the variables a, b, and/or c.) Homework Help ✎
cx − a = b
(x − a)(x − b) = 0
ax 2 − acx = 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.
