You can see the general process **here**.

(As you'll see when you study the lesson, solving literal equations is very much like**solving linear equations**.)

The only real difference between solving the linear equation "3 + y + 1 = 0" and the literal equation "3x + y + 1 = 0" is that you can't simplify as much, because of the second variable.
