## Step-by-step Solution

Problem to solve:

$2x+1=0$

Choose the solving method

1

We need to isolate the dependent variable $x$, we can do that by subtracting $1$ from both sides of the equation

$2x=-1$
2

Eliminate the $2$ from the left side, multiplying both sides of the equation by the inverse of $2$

$x=-\frac{1}{2}$

$x=-\frac{1}{2}$
