Sometimes there are some equations which are not linear equations but can be reduced to the linear form and then can be solved by the above methods.

**Example**

Solve

**Solution**

This is not a linear equation but can be reduced to linear form

**Step 1**: Multiply both the sides by Solve .

Now, this is a linear equation.

**Step 2**: Multiply both the sides by 8.

So the solution for the equation is .

**Example**

Sum of two numbers is 74. One of the numbers is 10 more than the other. What are the numbers?

**Solution**

Let one of the numbers be x*.*

Then the other number is *x* + 10.

Given that the sum of the two numbers is 74.

So,

One of the number is 32 and the other number is 42.
