# For Problems 31-42, solve each equation. 2 x − 5 = 3 4 x − 13

To determine

To Solve:

The given rational expression.

Explanation

Procedure used:

Rational expression, a quotient obtained by division of two polynomials in form of p(x,y)q(x,y) where p(x,y) and q(x,y) are polynomials in such a way that the variables x, y do not assume values such that q(x,y)=0.

If ab and cd are rational, then addition or subtraction of rational formed by equalized the denominator using LCD then operate on numerators:

And,

Same algebra is used for rational expression.

Calculation:

The given rational equation is 2xâˆ’5=34xâˆ’13.

LCD of the rational expression in the equation is âˆ’5(4xâˆ’13) when xâ‰ 134â€‰
