Evaluate the linear equation, Mathematics

Evaluate the linear equation:

Solve the equation ax - b = c for x in terms of a, b, and c.

Solution:

Step 1. Using Axiom 1, add b to both sides of the equation.

ax - b + b         =  c + b

ax        =  c + b

Step 2. Using Axiom 4, divide both sides of the equation by a.

ax/a = (c+b)/a

x= (c+b)a

Step 3. Check the root.

a(c+b)/a -b = c+b -b =c

The root checks.
