Solve the equations in Exercises 1–12 for x (mentally, if possible). a x + b = c             ( a ≠ 0 )

To determine

To calculate: The value of x in the linear equation ax+b=c (a0).

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided linear equation is ax+b=c (a0).

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 ax+b=c (a0).

Subtract b from both sides then simplify,

ax+bb=cbax+0=c
