$x = c - \frac{a}{b}$

#### Explanation:

first , rewrite the equation with x term on the left side ( reverse the equation).

hence : $x + \frac{a}{b} = c$

now , subtract $\frac{a}{b} \text{ from both sides }$

hence $x + \frac{a}{b} - \frac{a}{b} = c - \frac{a}{b}$

$\Rightarrow x = c - \frac{a}{b}$
