My teacher told us in class but I just didn't understad it.

The idea is to get the x all alone on one side.

Subtract one from each side.

Then, divide each side by three.

3x + 1 = 10

First subtract 1 from both sides. That should get you started.

OK HERE GOES>>>>

3x + 1 = 10.

So three of something, plus one equals ten in otherwords. I take away the one first. So now you have

3x = 9

Now what number three times equals nine?

Well that would be three !

So

3x = 9

means that

x = 3.

and your solution

3x = 1 = 10

Means

that three of x (which is three 3 times so thats nine to check)

plus 1 equals ten.

AKA- X = 3.

If you need help from your teacher again, dont be afraid to ask. Keep asking until you understand.

sorry if i confused you. sometimes

algebra looks hard, but indeed is very simple. The hardest part is understanding how it is so simple !

Good Luck =)
