To find what x equals, we need to get x alone on one side of this equation.

Here's the steps on how you would do that:

4-5x=1+6x              ---Add 5x to both sides to "clear" -5x from the left side

  +5x    +5x

--------------

4 = 1 + 6x + 5x        ---Combine 6x and 5x to get 11x

4 = 1 + 11x            ---Subtract 1 from both sides to "clear" 1 from the right side

-1   -1

----------

3 = 11x                --Now divide both sides by 11

3 ÷ 11 = x           --3 divided by 11 is really 3/11, because the fraction bar means to divide

3/11 = x

which means that

x = 3/11
