you have to solve the actual equation in order to answer this about your variable

carefully

you can only solve for one in an equation so it can equal something

No, you can only simplify an expression. To solve for a variable, it must be in an equation.

When an equation has a variable in it (only one), then there are only certainvalues the variable can have that will make the equation a true statement."Solving" the equation means finding those values for the variable.

"Solve an equation" means "find out, for which values of the variable or variables is the equation true".

Find values for the variable that satisfy the equation, that is if you replace those values for the variable into the original equation, the equation becomes a true statement.

You solve the equation the same way as you would any other equation. Whether the variable is a fraction or otherwise will only become clear once you solve the equation. In other words, you don't initially KNOW whether the solution will be a fraction or not.

By finding the x represents variable

You find, or construct, an equation or set of equations which express the unknown variable in terms of other variables. Then you solve the equation(s), using algebra.You find, or construct, an equation or set of equations which express the unknown variable in terms of other variables.
