# Worksheet on Linear Equation in One Variable

Practice the questions given in the worksheet on linear equation in one variable.

I. Solve the following equations and check the result:

1. 2x – 6 = 0

2. 7x – 2 = 8 - x

3. 8 – 2x = 5 – 4x

4. 4 + 3x = 2 – 2x

5. 2(x – 1) + 2(3x -1) = 0

6. 4(x-1) –(2x – 5) = 4

7. 2x – $$\frac{2}{3}$$ = $$\frac{3}{4}$$ – x

8. $$\frac{x}{2}$$ – 2= 4 + $$\frac{1}{4}$$

9. $$\frac{x}{9}$$ + $$\frac{x}{3}$$ = $$\frac{1}{9}$$

10. 3x + 2(x+2) = 10 – (2x – 5)

11. 10(y – 4) – 2(y – 9) – 5(y + 4) = 0

12. $$\frac{2m+5}{3}$$ = 3m - 5

13. 6(3x + 2) – 5(6x – 1) = 2(x – 8) – 5(7x – 6) + 8x

14. t – (2t +5) – (1- 2t) = (3 + 4t) – 2(t - 4)

15. $$\frac{2x}{3}$$ = $$\frac{3x}{4}$$ + $$\frac{7}{12}$$

16. $$\frac{3x-1}{5}$$ - $$\frac{x}{15}$$ =3

17. 2x – 3 = $$\frac{3}{10}$$ x (5x – 10)

18. $$\frac{2y – 1}{3}$$ - $$\frac{y - 2}{4}$$ = 1

19. $$\frac{x-2}{9}$$ + $$\frac{1}{3}$$ = x - $$\frac{2x - 1}{3}$$

20. $$\frac{2x - 1}{3}$$ - $$\frac{2x - 2}{5}$$ = $$\frac{1}{3}$$

21. $$\frac{y + 7}{15}$$ = 1 + $$\frac{3y - 2}{5}$$

22. $$\frac{2x - 18}{7}$$ + $$\frac{x}{3}$$ = 2

23. $$\frac{2x - 3}{5}$$ + $$\frac{x + 3}{4}$$ = $$\frac{4x + 1}{4}$$

24. $$\frac{21x - 3}{4}$$ – (2x - $$\frac{1 - x}{2}$$) = x + $$\frac{5}{2}$$

25. $$\frac{x + 2}{6}$$ – ($$\frac{11 - x}{3}$$- $$\frac{1}{4}$$) = $$\frac{3x - 4}{9}$$

26. $$\frac{9x + 7}{2}$$ – (x - $$\frac{x - 2}{12}$$ = 24

27. 0.5x +$$\frac{x}{3}$$ = 0.25x + 6

28. 0.18(5x – 4) = 0.5x + 0.6

29. 2.4(3 – x) – 0.3(2x – 3) = 0

30.  0.5x – (0.6 – 0.2x) = 0.2 – 0.3x

31. $$\frac{x + 2}{x - 2}$$ = $$\frac{7}{2}$$

32. $$\frac{2x + 5}{3x + 4}$$  = 5.
