# Solve: ā (7x - 1) = 1/4

An equation is a mathematical statement with an 'equal to' symbol between two algebraic expressions that have equal values.

## Answer: x = 1/4

Let's solve the equation for x

**Explanation:**

ā (7x - 1) = 1/4

(7x - 1)/3 = 1/4

{(7x - 1)/3} ×12 = (1/4) × 12

28x - 4 = 3

28x = 7

x = 7/28

x = 1/4
