How to solve 14x - 8 = 3? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one one variable 𝒙.

#### Steps for finding the solution

We have 14**x** - 8 = 3

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, 14**x** - 8 + 8 = 3 + 8

or, 14**x** = 11

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

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

14**x**/14 = 11/14

**x** = 11/14 or, **x** = 0.79
