# How do you solve 6x + 19= 44?

Apr 24, 2018

The solution is $\frac{25}{6}$ or $4.1 \overline{6}$.

#### Explanation:

First, you want to isolate the variable by subtracting $19$ from both sides.

$6 x + 19 - 19 = 44 - 19$

$6 x = 25$

Then, divide by $6$ on both sides so that $x$ is completely alone.

$x = \frac{25}{6}$

There isn't really anything you can do to simplify the fraction, so you can either leave it as it is or you can make is a decimal, which would be $4.1 \overline{6}$.

I hope this helped!
