In other words, we'll have to solve the equation and to verify if the value of x is a natural number. We notice that the set A will have only one element because the equation to be solved is a linear equation.

We'll move the terms in x to the left side:

4x - 2x = 11 - 1

2x = 10

x = 10/2

x = 5

Since the value of x is a natural number, therefore the set A contains the element x = 5, such as A = {5}.
