thing as a well let's start with the original equation

What happens if we multiply both sides by x minus

b while the left side becomes quantity x minus b

times Why And the right becomes a minus x sound

familiar that's because it's the same thing as option a

So apparently is our answer But wait we have to

be careful because option d says all of the above

so let's just do a quick check on another option

to see if he might be our golden child Is

there a way to get from option beaten back to

the original equation How about multiplying the right side by

negative one over negative one which equals negative ax plus

a over negative b plus x which equals quantity a

minus X over quantity x minus b so that's the

same thing as the original equation Looks like a isn't

our answer After all let's do c just to be

one hundred percent positive that he is our answer This

equation is just asking to be cross multiplied a minus

X equals quantity x minus b times Why that sounds

exactly like option a and since we said that option

a is equal to the original transitive lee speaking option

c equals the original Our answer is d all of 00:01:31.339 --> [endTime] the above Over No
