  1. I’ve found QUITE a few possibilities for this one!
    1/3(9x +6) +5x +2 = 8x + 4
    1/2(6x +4) +5x + 7 = 8x + 9
    2/3(9x +6) + 1x + 4 = 7x + 8
    and of course, in all three of those situations, I can double the possibilities by swapping the numbers that are coefficients with the numbers that are constants, so for example this would also work:
    1/3(6x + 9) + 2x + 5 = 4x + 8
