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 subtract 4 from both sides.

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

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

or, 5x = 22

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

Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

5x/5 = 22/5

x = 22/5 or, x = 4.4
