Calculate the linear equation:
Example:
Solve the equation 4x + 3 = 19 by transposing.
Solution:
Step 1. Transpose the 3 from the left-hand to the right-hand side of the equation by changing its sign.
4x = 19 - 3
4x = 16
Step 2. Using Axiom 4, divide by 4 both sides of the equation.
4x/4 = 16/4
X= 4
Step 3. Check the root.
4(4) + 3 = 16 + 3 = 19
The root checks.
