Ex 2.2, 13 A rational number is such that when you multiply it by 5/2 and add 2/3 to the product, you get โˆ’ 7/12. What is the number?Let x be the rational number Given that, If Multiply number by 5/2 and add 2/3 to product, we get โ€“ 7/12 Therefore, 5๐‘ฅ/2+2/3=(โˆ’7)/12 5๐‘ฅ/2=(โˆ’7)/12 โˆ’2/3 5๐‘ฅ/2=(โˆ’7 โˆ’ 2 ร— 4)/12 5๐‘ฅ/2=(โˆ’7 โˆ’ 8)/12 5๐‘ฅ/2=(โˆ’15)/12 ๐‘ฅ = (โˆ’15)/12ร—2/5 ๐‘ฅ = (โˆ’3)/6 ๐‘ฅ=(โˆ’1)/2 โˆด The rational number is (โˆ’๐Ÿ)/๐Ÿ
