This video explains how to solve a single variable linear equation. Keep in mind that your equation should be in the form ax + b = c. The goal is to solve for x. Isolate the variable. Begin by subtracting b from both sides of the equation. Look at your new equation. It should now be in the form ax = c  b. Solve for x by dividing both sides by a. Your expression is now in the form x = (c  b)/a. You have solved the expression for x.
