## anonymous 5 years ago Solve linear equations. 3/17x=12

1. saifoo.khan

$\frac{3}{17}x = 12$ $x = \frac{12 \times 17}{3}$ $x = 4 \times 17$

Ok that was correct! is there a formula for this?

3. saifoo.khan

Nope, no particular formula!

4. anonymous

There could be a formula (but it's bit overstatement) For $$ax = b \implies x=\frac b a , \forall a,b \in \mathbb{R} ,a \neq 0$$
