we have the following linear equation eight times X plus B times y is equal to see. And again it's linear because our X and Y values air raised to the power of one. And in this particular equation we're trying to solve for the X value. So in order to do this, we're gonna want to get X by itself. So we're gonna be simplifying, rearranging, and then eventually isolating. X Morgan is the fact that addition and subtraction will under each other and multiplication and division will under each other. So the first step we could do is shift this value be times y to the right side of the equation so you could get a X by itself. We're gonna do this by subtracting B y from both sides of the equation. So now we're gonna be left with a 10 sex for a X on the be wise. Cancel each other out. Now they're on the right side of the equation. Okay, And now from here, we want to get we want to isolate X by itself. So we're gonna have to divide both sides by a in order to cancel out the A on the left side of the equation e never going to divide the entire right side like a hustle. And after this, we're gonna be left with X because a over a just one, which is just one thing sex. And now we have this in parentheses. C minus becomes wine, all of it divided by eight. This is our X value.
