# How do you solve \frac { x + 10} { 22} = 1?

Jun 24, 2018

$x = 12$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{x + 10}{22} = 1$

Multiply by 22 on both sides
$x + 10 = 22$

Subtract 10 on both sides
$x = 22 - 10$

Simplify
$x = 12$

Multiply both sides by $22$, then solve.

#### Explanation:

$\frac{x + 10}{22} \times 22 = 1 \times 22$

$x + 10 = 22$

So

$x = 22 - 10 = 12$
