d –b a–c 9. (E) x + 1 – 3 = –7 x + 1 = –4 x + 1 = 16 x = 15 5. (B) Multiply the first equation by 3, the second by 7, and subtract. 21x – 6y = 6 21x + 28y = 210 –34y = –204 y=6 Checking, 16 – 3 = –7, which is not true. 10. (B)
x2 + 7 – 1 = x x2 + 7 = x + 1 x2 + 7 = x2 + 2x + 1 7 = 2x + 1 6 = 2x x=3 Checking, 16 – 1 = 3, which is true. www.petersons.com Concepts of Algebra—Signed Numbers and Equations 129 Exercise 1
