# How do you solve 6x+1=4?

Nov 17, 2016

The solution is $x = \frac{1}{2}$.

#### Explanation:

Use inverse operations to first isolate the variable term and then to solve for the variable. Remember that addition and subtraction are inverse operations, and that multiplication and division are inverse operations.

$6 x + 1 = 4$
$6 x + 1 - 1 = 4 - 1$
$6 x = 3$
$\frac{6 x}{6} = \frac{3}{6}$
$x = \frac{1}{2}$
