How to solve 5x = 15? Get the answer and stepwise instruction to solve linear equation in one variable 𝒙.

We have 5**x** = 15

Divide both sides by 5, which is the coefficent of **x**

**Note: ** if a = b, then a ÷ c = b ÷ c

5**x**5 = 155

**x** = 155

To simplify, divide both numerator and denominator by 5, which is the GCF of 15 and 5:

**x** = 31 or, **x** = 3
