# Match the Solution

- For which equation or inequality is
*x*= 4 a solution?

*x* + 5 = 3*x* + 1

*x *+ 5 > 3*x *+ 1

*x *+ 5 < 3*x *+ 1

- Check your answer by using the Balance Scale X interactive. (Ignore the instructions on the interactive and follow these steps.) Represent the expression
*x*+ 5 on the left side and the expression 3*x*+ 1 on the right side. Then subsitute 4 for each*x*on the scale.
