### About Linear Equations in one Variable Part 1:

In order to solve any linear equation in one variable, we must understand the four step process. First we collect terms and simplify each side. Then, we move all variable terms to one side and all numbers to the other. Next, we isolate the variable and finish our process by checking our result with substitution.
