00:00:00.520 --> 00:00:05.640
Solve 𝑥 minus 67 equals 81.
00:00:07.040 --> 00:00:09.920
This is a one-step linear equation.
00:00:10.640 --> 00:00:16.200
Some number minus 67 equals 81.
00:00:17.160 --> 00:00:22.200
And to find what our 𝑥 is, we’ll need to add 67 to both sides of our equation.
00:00:22.800 --> 00:00:26.840
Negative 67 plus 67 equals zero.
00:00:27.480 --> 00:00:33.520
81 plus 67 equals 148.
00:00:34.240 --> 00:00:37.160
𝑥 plus zero would just be equal to 𝑥.
00:00:37.760 --> 00:00:41.880
And that tells us that 𝑥 equals 148.
00:00:42.720 --> 00:00:54.040
To check and make sure we’ve solved this correctly, we can plug in 148 for our 𝑥 value in the original equation.
00:00:55.160 --> 00:01:07.800
~~67 minus 148~~ [148 minus 67] equals 81, so 𝑥 equals 148.
