6.7 Solving linear equations using distributive property: a(x+b)=ca(x + b) = c

Solving linear equations using distributive property: a(x+b)=ca(x + b) = c

When you see equations in the form of a(x+b) =c, you can remove the bracket and rewrite the equations into ax+ab =c using the distributive property. In this lesson, we will make use of this property to help us solve linear equations.
