How to solve 6x = 42? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one variable 𝒙.

We have 6**x** = 42

Divide both sides by 6, which is the coefficent of **x**

**Note: ** if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

6**x**6 = 426

**x** = 426

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 6, which is the GCF of 42 and 6:

**x** = 71 or, **x** = 7
