# Solve basic linear equation Ax+B=C in Python

The Python code in this article shows you how to solve basic linear equations in the form of Ax+B=C.

## Python code to solve basic linear equation Ax+B=C

Essentially, this is a fairly small program. If you take away the comments and the introduction, then you will have about 8 lines of code.

print('*********************************************')
print('*  Solving equations in the form of Ax+B=C  *')
print('*********************************************\n')

numA = int(input('Input a number for A: '))
numB = int(input('Input a number for B: '))
numC = int(input('Input a number for C: '))

if (numA == 0):
print('\'A\' cannot equal zero.')
else:
print('\nFor the equation: {}x+{}={}'.format(numA, numB, numC))
print('\nThe result is: x =', int(((numC - numB) / numA)))``````

Feel free to use this code for your own purposes.

#### Output

Here is the output to this program.

#### Developer’s note

So, to solve Ax-B=C, simply change the minus (-) sign to the plus (+) sign, on line 20 in the code listing.

As a result, the formula is (numC + numB) / numA. Remember, numA cannot equal zero.
