As the name suggests, a linear equation in one variable implies that there is only ONE variable, and that the equation involves only real numbers. A linear equation in one variable can be written in this form: Ax + B = C where A does NOT equal zero.

A linear equation is also a first-degree equation, since the greatest power of any variable is 1.

Here are some examples of linear equations in one variable:

x + 2 = -1

x - 3 = 5

3k + 4 = 10
