# Question #28d19

I get $x = 9 , 876 , 541$

Can anyone beat this?

#### Explanation:

$a x + b = c$

If you have a very large value of $x$, you will have a very large answer for $c$ on the right side.

You want $a \mathmr{and} b$ to be as small as possible, because in solving for $x$, they will make the value of $c$ less.

You will subtract $b$ and divide by $a$

My suggestion would be:

$1 x + 2 = 9 , 876 , 543$

This gives the value of $x$ as $9 , 876 , 541$
