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

To determine

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

Explanation

Given Information:

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

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=2x+2.

Add 22x on both sides then simplify,

x+122x=2x+222xx1=0

Add 1 on both sides in the above equation,

x+122x=2x+222x
