Solve for x.

`x + 4 = 6`

In order to solve for x you must isolate the variable.  In order to isolate the variable, you must undo the operations.

Subtract 4 from each side.

`x + 4 - 4 = 6 - 4`

`x + 0 = 2`

`x = 2`

The solution is x = 2.

You need to solve for `x` the linear equation, hence, you need to isolate the unknown x to the left side, subtracting 4 both sides, such that:

`x + 4 = 6 => x + 4 - 4 = 6 - 4`

Reducing duplicate terms, yields:

`x = 2`

Hence, evaluating the solution to the given one step equation, yields `x = 2.`

x + 4 = 6  what is the value of x

To find the value of the unknown variable x we need to isolate it,

x + 4 = 6

x + 4 - 4 = 6 - 4       Subtract 4 from both sides

x = 6 - 4

x = 2 Answer.

Question:-

x+4=6  what is the value of x

Solution:-

In this problem we have been given a linear equation, and we have to find the value of x. 

x + 4 = 6

Simply transfer 4 to RHS and when transferred its sign will change. OR just subtract 4 from both sides; Like;

x + 4 - 4 = 6 - 4

x = 2

Hence the value of x is 2.

x+4=6       subtract 4 from both sides to get x alone

x=2     so x equals 2

`x+4=6`

`x=2`

` `

you have to subtract 2 from both sides to isolate x. By isolating x, you solve what is x equals to, this problem only requires one step, although other problems may require more.
