Solve 2x + 3 = 3x + 4

How to solve 2x + 3 = 3x + 4? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one one variable 𝒙.

Steps for finding the solution

We have 2x + 3 = 3x + 4

First, we move the x terms to the LHS and constant terms to the RHS of the equation, inverting the sign on the terms. This is also called transposing method.

Transposition is a faster method and combines the following two steps, were we to solve the equation by:
i) Subtracting 3 from both sides
ii) Subtracting 3x from both sides

Therefore, 2x - 3x = 4 - 3

or, -x = 1

Next, divide both sides by -1, which is the coefficent of x

Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

-1x/-1 = 1/-1

x = 1/-1 or, x = -1
