5x - 6 = 14
Explanation:
A Linear equations are the equations having one or more variables with the equal to symbol and with a power one.
Step 2
5x − 6 =14
Adding the number 6 on both side of the equation.
5x − 6 + 6=14+6
5x=20
Dividing the number 5 on both sides.
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{20}}}{{{5}}}}\)
x=4

Step 1: Add 6 to both parts of the equation
6x-6=14
5x-6+6=14+6
Step 2: Simplification
5x=14+6
5x=20
Step 3: Divide both parts of the equation by one term
\(\displaystyle{\frac{{{5}{x}}}{{{5}}}}={\frac{{{20}}}{{{5}}}}\)
Step 4: Simplification
\(\displaystyle{x}={\frac{{{20}}}{{{5}}}}\)
x=4
The solution
x=4
