Find the input value for which the functions f(x)= (-5/2)x+2 and g(x)= (5/6)x-4 have the same output value.
Ah. That would not
have been what I would have guessed you'd meant.
Thank you; that is
To find the input value "x" that makes the output expressions "-(5/2)x + 2" and "(5/6)x - 4" equal to each other, follow the instructions provided earlier: Set the output expression equal to each other:. . . . .
-(5/2)x + 2 = (5/6)x - 4
...and solve the linear equation
A good first step might be to multiply through by 6, thus getting rid of the denominators.. . . . .
-15x + 12 = 5x - 24
...etc, etc, and so forth.
