# Solve for x: 7 over 8 minus 1 over x equals 3 over 4.

**Solution:**

Linear equation can be written in different ways.

Any simple equation in x and y can be termed as a linear equation if it follows a certain set of rules.

For example, the highest (and the only) degree of both - x and y - variables in the equation should be 1.

The problem statement can be translated into the mathematical equation as :

7/8 - 1/x = 3/4

Now solve for x by isolating the variable x.

7/8 - 3/4 = 1/x

(7 - 6)/8 = 1/x

1/8 = 1/x

x = 8

## Solve for x: 7 over 8 minus 1 over x equals 3 over 4.

**Summary:**

Solving for x when 7 over 8 minus 1 over x equals 3 over 4, we get x = 8.
