Linear Equations is of the form  ax + b = c , where  a, b,  and  c  are constants and a   0. Strategy for  solving linear equations:   [1]  Clear parentheses, using the distributive property, and clear fractions  or decimals by multiplying both side by LCD or a power of 10;  [2]  collect like terms on each side;  [3]  use addition (subtraction) property of equality to get all variable terms on one side and all constant
