Work Step by Step

The first step to solving 4x-4b = x is to recognize that you must combine like terms in order to isolate the variables. The first step is to subtract x from both sides of the equation giving you: 3x-4b = 0 Next, add 4b to both sides giving you: 3x=4b Lastly, divide both sides by 3 to get rid of the coefficient in front of x giving you the answer: x=4b/3
