A group of x people rent a bus that cost \$36 and share the cost. If three more people join the group,
then each person would pay \$1 less. Set up an equation and solve for x.
Solve for x:
x+5 = 2  x
If the solutions are real numbers, give the simplified exact solution and the numerical approximation. If
the solutions are complex, just simplify the solutions.
2x (x + 1) = 3 + x
2x2 + 2x + 3 = 0
2x (x – 1) = 2x + 1
2x2 + 4(x – 3) = 4x
