Can all equations with a single variable be solved?(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

5 = (x)/(1+x^7)

How can something like this be solved for example. Sometimes I have equations with one variable and I can’t see any way to solve them with the knowledge of math that I currently have. Is it just that a higher level of math is required to solves problems like the one above or am I missing something?
