Example 1
Solve 5x  4  2x + 3 = 7  3x + 5 + 2x
Solution 1
Step 1: Combine the similar terms 

Step 2: Add x to both sides. 

Step 3: Add 1 to both sides. 

Step 4: Divide both sides by 2: 

Solution is: 
Level 1
Level 2
Example 2
Solve
Solution 2
Step 1: Simplify both sides: 

Step 2: Subtract x from both sides. 

Step 3: Divide both sides by 3: 

Solution is: 
Level 1
Level 2
Example 3
Solve
Solution 3
Step 1: Multiply both sides by the LCD. Lowest common multiple of 2 and 3 is 6. So, we multiply both sides by 6. 

Step 2: Remove brackets: 

Step3: This problem is similar the previous 

Solution is: 
Level 1

Example 4
Solution 4
In this case the LCD is (x + 2)(x  10). Here is the complete solution to this problem.
Example 5
Solution 4
The first step is to factor the denominators
The LCD is (x + 3)(x + 2). The solution is:
