EXAMPLE 1 Solve an equation with a variable on one side Solve 4 5 x + 8 = 20. 4 5 x + 8 = 20 4 5 x = 12 x = (12) 5 4 x = 15 Write original equation. Subtract 8 from each side. Multiply each side by, the reciprocal of. 5 44 5 Simplify. ANSWER The solution is 15. CHECK x = 15 in the original equation. 4 5 4 5 x + 8 = (15) + 8 = 12 + 8 = 20
