# If 2 times the sum of 15 and a number is equal to the number divided by 4, what is the number?

Nov 10, 2015

The number is $- \frac{120}{7} = - 17 \frac{1}{7}$

#### Explanation:

(I modified the question wording so as to make the question answerable; if the revised wording is not what was intended, please re-post in a valid form).

Let the number be $n$

2(15+n)) = n/4

$8 \left(15 + n\right) = n$

$7 n = - 120$

$n = - \frac{120}{7}$
