# Solving One-Step Addition Equations

Some linear equations can be solved with a single operation. For this type of equation, use the inverse operation to solve.

Example :

Solve for $n$ .

$n+8=10$

The inverse operation of addition is subtraction. So, subtract $8$ from both sides.

$\begin{array}{l}n+8-8=10-8\\ n=2\end{array}$
