# Solve: -1/3 (7x - 1) = 1/4

To solve this we will equate the equation to 0.

## Answer: The value of x in -1/3 (7x - 1) = 1/4 is 1/4.

**Explanation:**

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

on splitting this,

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

moving the constants to one side , we have

7x/3 = 1/4 + 1/3

taking LCM of 3 and 4 and adding 1/3 and 1/4 we get ,

7x/ 3 = 7/12

7x = 7/4

==> x= 1/4
