# Higher Order Equation that reduces to a linear equation

Example: Solve the equation.

Solution:

 The original equation Simplify both sides of the equation.  On the left hand side, rewrite the exponent.  On the right hand side, begin to simplify the multiplication. Simplify both sides of the equation.  On the left hand side, begin multiplying.  On the right hand side, combine like terms. Simplify both sides of the equation.  On the left hand side, combine like terms.  On the right hand side use the distributive property. Simplify both sides of the equation.  On the left hand side, continue multiplying.  The right hand side is in simplest form. Simplify both sides of the equation.  On the left hand side, combine like terms.  The right hand side is in simplest form. Now that each side is in simplest form we want the terms with x on one side and the constant terms on the the other side.  Subtract from each side.  It cancels from each side. Subtract from each side.  It cancels from each side. Subtract from each side and simplify. Subtract from each side and simplify. Get x by it self by dividing by 19 on both sides and simplify.
