How to solve 2x + 15 = 95? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one one variable 𝒙.

Steps for finding the solution

We have 2x + 15 = 95

First, we move the non x terms to the RHS of the equation. To do this, we subtract 15 from both sides.

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

Therefore, 2x + 15 - 15 = 95 - 15

or, 2x = 80

Next, divide both sides by 2, which is the coefficent of x

Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

2x/2 = 80/2

x = 80/2

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 2, which is the GCF of 80 and 2:

x = 40/1 or, x = 40
