# How do you solve for X in TX-B=P?

Feb 16, 2016

$X = \frac{P + B}{T}$

#### Explanation:

to solve for X means leave X alone on the left-hand side.. So

1. add B to both sides

$T X - B + B = P + B$
$T X = P + B$

1. divide both sides by T

$T \frac{X}{T} = \frac{P + B}{T}$
$X = \frac{P + B}{T}$

remember: while solving equations, what you do to one side, you should do the same to the other.
