How to solve 6x + 1 = 13? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one one variable 𝒙.

Steps for finding the solution

We have 6x + 1 = 13

First, we move the non x terms to the RHS of the equation. To do this, we subtract 1 from both sides.

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

Therefore, 6x + 1 - 1 = 13 - 1

or, 6x = 12

Next, divide both sides by 6, which is the coefficent of x

Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

6x/6 = 12/6

x = 12/6

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 6, which is the GCF of 12 and 6:

x = 2/1 or, x = 2
