This C program solves linear equation in one variable.

Here is the source code of the C program to solve any linear equation in one variable. The C program is successfully compiled and run on a Linux system. The program output is also shown below.

`#include <stdio.h>`

`#include <string.h>`

float solve_for_y(float a, float b, float c)

`{`

float Y = Y = -(b + c) / a;

return Y;

`}`

main()

`{`

float a, b, c, Y;

printf("\nEnter a linear equation in one variable of the form aY + b + c = 0 ");

printf("\nEnter the value of a, b, c respectively: ");

scanf("%f%f%f", &a, &b, &c);

Y = solve_for_y(a, b, c);

printf("\nSolution is Y = %f", Y);
