The following are some problems and their solutions of solving one-step linear equations.

### Solved Example 1

`x + 6 = 7`

### Solution

Write the original equation,`x + 6 = 7`Subtract 6 from both sides of the equation,

`x + 6 - 6 = 7 - 6`Simplify the LHS and RHS,

`x = 1`Thus, `x = 1` is the answer to the equation `x + 6 = 7`

### Solved Example 2

`x - 4 = 2`

### Solution

Write the original equation,`x - 4 = 2`Add 4 to both sides of the equation,

`x - 4 + 4 = 2 + 4`Simplify the LHS and RHS,

`x =6`Thus, `x = 6` is the answer to the equation `x - 4 = 2`

### Solved Example 3

`2x = 10`

### Solution

Write the original equation,`2x = 10`Divide throughout by 2,

`(2x)/2 = 10/2`Simplify the LHS and RHS,

`x = 5`Thus, `x = 5` is the answer to the equation `2x = 10`

### Solved Example 4

`2x = 10 + x`

### Solution

Write the original equation,`2x = 10 + x`Subtract `x` from both sides of the equation,

`2x - x = 10 + x - x`Simplify the LHS and RHS,

`x = 10`Thus, `x = 10` is the answer to the equation `2x = 10 + x`

### Solved Example 5

`x - 5 = -6`

### Solution

Write the original equation,`x - 5 = -6`Add 5 to both sides of the equation,

`x - 5 + 5 = -6 + 5`Simplify the LHS and RHS,

`x = -1`Thus, `x = -1` is the answer to the equation `x - 5 = -6`
