5?2.

Is –9 a solution to the equation 9 – 8x =

81?3.

Solve -2x+7>=94.

Solve 3(x-5)<2(2x-1)5. Solve.
8x + 2 = 7x 6. Solve.

they manufacture are defective. If 8
defective parts are found one week by the quality assurance testers, how many
parts were manufactured that week?9. Solve for x. 35 – 7x = 35 10. Solve for x. .png"> – 5 = 5 11. Solve for x. 4(x – 2) + 4x = 5x + 4 12. Solve for x. 7x – 3 + 3x = 10x – 3 13. Solve for x. –10x + 1 – 7x = –17x + 714. Solve the literal equation for y. x + 5y = 2515. A rectangular solid has a base with length 5

cm and width 2 cm. If the volume of the

solid is 100 cm3, find the height of the solid.
