Solve 5148x + 123 = 797x + 3

How to solve 5148x + 123 = 797x + 3? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one one variable 𝒙.

Steps for finding the solution

We have 5148x + 123 = 797x + 3

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 123 from both sides
ii) Subtracting 797x from both sides

Therefore, 5148x - 797x = 3 - 123

or, 4351x = -120

Next, divide both sides by 4351, which is the coefficent of x

Note: if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

4351x/4351 = -120/4351

x = -120/4351 or, x = -0.03
