# The solution of the equation 3x + 5 = 0 is

(a) 5/3

(b) – 5

(c) – 5/3

(d) 5

**Solution:**

The given equation is 3x + 5 = 0

Thus,

3x = – 5

x = – 5/3

Hence the correct option is (c) – 5/3

Thus, the solution of the equation 3x + 5 = 0 is – 5/3

**✦ Try This:** The solution of the equation 5x – 2 = 0 is

(a) 2/5 (b) – 5 (c) – 2 (d) 5/2

The given equation is 5x – 2 = 0

Thus,

5x = 2

x = 5/2

Hence the correct option is (d) 5/2

Thus, the solution of the equation 5x – 2 = 0 is 5/2
