# How do you solve 1+3x=-x+4?

Dec 10, 2016

$x = \frac{3}{4}$

#### Explanation:

Get all the $x$'s on one side and all of the constants on the other so that you find the value of $x$. There are multiple ways to do this correctly.

Add $x$ to both sides of the equation to get
$1 + 4 x = 4$
Subtract $1$ from both sides to get
$4 x = 3$
Divide by the constant $4$ on both sides to get
$x = \frac{3}{4}$
