(1) Validation or check result means to verify the answer by putting the values in the linear equation

(2) Calculate the LHS(Left Hand side) by substituting the variable and similary calculate the RHS(Right hand side) by substituting the variable

(3) Both the LHS and RHS should be equal

Solve and check result: $3x= 2x+ 18$

$3x= 2x+ 18$

Transposing 2x to L.H.S, we obtain

$3x- 2x= 18$

x= 18

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S = 3x= 3 × 18 = 54

R.H.S = 2x+ 18 = 2 × 18 + 18 = 36 + 18 = 54

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result: $5t- 3 = 3t- 5$

$5t- 3 = 3t- 5$

Transposing 3t to L.H.S and -3 to R.H.S, we obtain

$5t- 3t= -5 - (-3)$

2t= -2

Dividing both sides by 2

t= -1

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S = 5t- 3 = 5 × (-1) - 3 = -8

R.H.S = 3t- 5 = 3 × (-1) - 5 = - 3 - 5 = -8

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result

$5x+ 9 = 5 + 3x$

$5x+ 9 = 5 + 3x$

Transposing 3x to L.H.S and 9 to R.H.S, we obtain

$5x- 3x= 5 - 9$

2x= -4

Dividing both sides by 2, we obtain

x= -2

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S = 5x+ 9 = 5 × (-2) + 9 = -1

R.H.S = 5 + 3x= 5 + 3 × (-2) = -1

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result:

$4z+ 3 = 6 + 2z$

$4z+ 3 = 6 + 2z$

Transposing 2z to L.H.S and 3 to R.H.S, we obtain

$4z- 2z= 6 - 3$

2z= 3

Dividing both sides by 2, we obtain

z=3/2

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S = 4z+ 3 = 4 × (3/2)+ 3 = 6 + 3 = 9

R.H.S = 6 + 2z= 6 + 2 × (3/2)= 6 + 3 = 9

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result:

$2x- 1 = 14 -x$

$2x- 1 = 14 -x$

Transposing x to L.H.S and 1 to R.H.S, we obtain

$2x+x= 14 + 1$

3x= 15

Dividing both sides by 3, we obtain

x= 5

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S = 2x- 1 = 2 × (5) - 1 = 10 - 1 = 9

R.H.S = 14 -x= 14 - 5 = 9

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result:

$8x+ 4 = 3(x- 1) + 7$

$8x+ 4 = 3(x- 1) + 7$

$8x+ 4 = 3x- 3 + 7$

Transposing 3x to L.H.S and 4 to R.H.S, we obtain

$8x- 3x= - 3 + 7 - 4$

$5x= - 7 + 7$

5x=0

x=0

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S = 8x+ 4 = 8 × (0) + 4 = 4

R.H.S = 3(x- 1) + 7 = 3 (0 - 1) + 7 = - 3 + 7 = 4

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result:

Multiplying both sides by 5, we obtain

$5x= 4(x+ 10)$

$5x= 4x+ 40$

Transposing 4x to L.H.S, we obtain

5x- 4x= 40

x= 40

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S =x= 40

R.H.S = =40

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result:

Transposing 7x/15 on LHS and 1 on RHS

Multiplying by 15 on both sides

10x-7x= 30

3x=30

Dividing by 3 on both the sides

x=10

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S = =23/3

R.H.S= =23/3

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result

Transposingyto L.H.S and5/3 to R.H.S, we obtain

3y=21/3

3y=7

Dividing both sides by 3, we obtain

y=7/3

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

Solve and check result:

Transposing 3m to R.H.S and 8/5 to L.H.S

8/5= 2m

Dividing both sides by 2

m=4/5

Let us evaluate both the LHS and RHS for validate the answer

L.H.S =3m=12/5

R.H.S =5m –(8/5)=12/5

L.H.S. = R.H.S.

It proves that result is correct

(2) Solve and check the result $3x - 4 = 1 - 2 x$

(3) Solve and check the result $ \frac {m}{2} -11= 2$

(4) Solve and check the result $ 11y =6y - \frac {1}{3}$

(5) Solve the check the result $ \frac {x}{5} + 8=30$
