Which of the following intervals contain the solution to the equation:
2x + 5 x  2 = ——— 3 A.) 6 < x < 11 B.) 11 ≤ x < 15 C.) 6 < x ≤ 10 D.) 5 < x ≤ 3 E.) 11 < x ≤ 2
2x + 5
x  2 =  3 3(x  2) = 2x + 5 {multiplied each side by 3, clearing out fraction} 3x  6 = 2x + 5 {used distributive property} x = 11 {added 6 and subtracted 2x from each side} B.) 11 ≤ x < 15 contains the solution x = 11 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
