How to solve 4x + 5 = 30? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one variable 𝒙.

#### Steps for finding the solution

We have 4**x** + 5 = 30

First, we move the *non ***x** terms to the RHS of the equation. To do this, we subtract 5 from both sides.

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

Therefore, 4**x** + 5 - 5 = 30 - 5

or, 4**x** = 25

Next, divide both sides by 4, which is the coefficent of **x**

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

4**x**/4 = 25/4

**x** = 25/4 or, **x** = 6.25
