Solve the equations in Exercises 1–12 for x (mentally, if possible). x + 1 = 3 x + 1

To determine

To calculate: The value of x in the linear equation x+1=3x+1.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided linear equation is x+1=3x+1.

Formula used:

Linear equation ax+b=0 where a and b are fixed numbers with a0.

Step:1 Subtract b from both sides in the given equation.

Step:2 Divide by a on both sides in the given equation.

Calculation:

Consider the linear equation x+1=3x+1.

Add 13x on both sides then simplify,

x+113x=3x+1<
