is 5 over x minus 2 over 7=7 a linear equation? if so write the equation in standard form.
Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!
a linear equation is any equation that can be expressed in the form ax+b=0 where a and b are real numbers and x is a variable.Expressing a function in this form is known as standard form of linear equation
There we start by expressing our function
NOTE:
KINDLY THERE IS CONFUSION ON THE QUESTION.BECAUSE YOU HAVE WRITTEN TWO DIFFERENT FUNCTIONS ie
5/x2/y=7 and
5/x  2/7=7
Hi.This a continuation to our above function on expressing in linear standard form
for 5/x2/7=7,
we start by collecting the like terms together ie. we move 2/7 to right hand side of the equal sign and when ve cross equal sign it becomes +ve
5/x=7+2/7 , find the common denominator and add the two as fraction
5/x=7/1+2/7 common factor is 7, therefore we have
5/x=49/7+2/7
5/x=51/7
lets multiply by x on both side to eliminate it from the denominator
x*5/x=51/7*x
5=51/7(x)
linear equation is equation of form ax+b=0
therefore, rearranging by taking 5 to the RHS of the equation, we obtain
51/7(x) 5=0
Since the function corresponds to the linear equation form hence its a linear equation
