Solve the equations in Exercises 1–12 for x (mentally, if possible). 2 x + 4 = 1

To determine

To calculate: The value of x in the linear equation 2x+4=1.

Explanation

Given Information:

The provided linear equation is 2x+4=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 2x+4=1.

Subtract 4 from both sides then simplify,

2x+44=142x+0=3<
