Double click anywhere & add an idea What is a linear Equation? Let's look at some examples 3x - 2 = 4

2x - 5 = 8x + 2

(2/3)x + 4/5 = 4

5.2x-2.6=3.9x OK, what are some counter examles Slightly more technical definition Any Equation that can be written in the form: ax + b = c, where a, b, & c are real numbers. Example Solve 3x = 6 Summary

Step 1. What is beside the x that we don't want?

Answer: a 3.

Step 2. How is the 3 "connected" to the x?

Answer: it is being multiplied

Step 3. How do we "undo" multiplication?

Answer: Division

Step 4. Divide both sides by 3.

This gives us 3x = 6
