##### Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation

7q+6=11q+2

Solve for q

7q + 6 = 11q + 2

##### Group variables

Group our variables 7q and 11q
subtract 11q from both sides

7q + 6 - 11q = 11q + 2 - 11q

-4q + 6 = 2

##### Group constants

Group our constants 6 and 2.
subtract 6 from both sides

-4q + 6 - 6 = 2 - 6

-4q = -4

 -4q -4
 =
 -4 -4

q = 1

q = 1

q = 1
