This tutor describes how to solve basic algebraic equations.
6x + 42 = 60
An easy way to solve this would be to subtract 42 from 60, then divide that answer by 6 leaving you x = (the answer).
6x + 42 = 60 Our problem
6x + 42 – 42 = 60 – 42 Subtract 42 from both sides
6x = 18 Now we’re going to divide both sides by 6
6x/6 = 18/6 Make sure to cancel out your 6’s on the left side
x = 3 Your answer
