How to solve 5x - 4 = 26? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one one variable 𝒙.

Steps for finding the solution

We have 5x - 4 = 26

First, we move the non x terms to the RHS of the equation. To do this, we add 4 to both sides.

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

Therefore, 5x - 4 + 4 = 26 + 4

or, 5x = 30

Next, divide both sides by 5, which is the coefficent of x

Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

5x/5 = 30/5

x = 30/5

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 5, which is the GCF of 30 and 5:

x = 6/1 or, x = 6
