To solve a linear equation, clear any parentheses and isolate the variable. Recall that a linear equation only involves the independent variable (x) to the first power (that, is, it has no terms like x2, 1/x, sin(x), etc.).
Be sure you've gone through each step in the examples above before doing these. Once you've worked them until you're sure that you understand them, go on to the next section. There are more problems of this type in the section test at the end of the section.
