Linear equations which can be solved with a single operation are called one-step linear equations. In this section, we will try to solve one-step linear equations represented in diagrams and in equation form.

Basic Concepts:Solving linear equations using multiplication and division, Solving two-step linear equations: $ax + b = c$, ${x \over a} + b = c$, Solving linear equations using distributive property: $a(x + b) = c$, Solving linear equations with variables on both sides,
