Solving a linear equation involves several basic operations. The first step is to simplify both sides of the equation by combining like terms and eliminating any parentheses or brackets. Next, we isolate the variable by performing inverse operations. This means that if the variable appears with addition, we subtract that number from both sides. If the variable appears with multiplication, we divide both sides by that number. The goal is to get the variable alone on one side of the equation, with a coefficient of 1. Finally, we check our solution by substituting it back into the original equation. If the equation is balanced, then the solution is correct. Overall, the basic operations involved in solving a linear equation are simplifying, isolating the variable, and verifying the solution.
