How to solve 14x - 8 = 13? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one one variable 𝒙.

Steps for finding the solution

We have 14x - 8 = 13

First, we move the non x terms to the RHS of the equation. To do this, we add 8 to both sides.

Note: if a = b, then a + c = b + c

Therefore, 14x - 8 + 8 = 13 + 8

or, 14x = 21

Next, divide both sides by 14, which is the coefficent of x

Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

14x/14 = 21/14

x = 21/14

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 7, which is the GCF of 21 and 14:

x = 3/2 or, x = 1.5
