Tick (✓) the correct answer

$\frac{x+5}{2}+\frac{x-5}{3}=\frac{25}{6}$ gives

(a) $x=3$

(b) $x=4$

(c) $x=5$

(d) $x=2$


(b) $x=4$


$\Rightarrow \frac{3(x+5)+2(x-5)}{6}=\frac{25}{6}$        (because L.C.M. of $2 \& 3$ is 6 )

$\Rightarrow \frac{3 x+15+2 x-10}{6}=\frac{25}{6}$

$\Rightarrow \frac{5 x+5}{6}=\frac{25}{6}$

$\Rightarrow 5 x+5=25$       (cancelling 6 from the denominator on both the sides)

$\Rightarrow 5 x=25-5$

$\Rightarrow 5 x=20$

$\Rightarrow x=\frac{20}{5}$

$\Rightarrow x=4$
