“Linear equations in disguise” refer to equations that don’t initially appear to be linear but can be manipulated into a linear form. These equations might involve fractions, products, or other operations, but after simplification, they reveal their linear nature.

Steps to Solve Linear Equations in Disguise

- Simplify the Equation:

- Remove any fractions by multiplying both sides by the least common denominator (LCD).
- Distribute any factors across parentheses.
- Combine like terms.

- Isolate the Variable:

- Move all terms involving the variable to one side of the equation.
- Move all constant terms to the other side.

- Solve for the Variable:

- Divide or multiply as needed to solve for the variable.

- Check the Solution:

- Substitute your solution back into the original equation to ensure it satisfies the equation.
