# How do you solve #-22+ \frac { x } { 3} = 4#?

#### Explanation:

I’m assuming you are solving for x

So you want to isolate x by itself.

Let’s start by adding both sides by 22 (what you do on the left, you must do on the right!)

Notice that -22+22=0, so that cancels out and we get:

Now we would still want to get x by itself, so the next move is to multiply both sides by 3 to cancel out the denominator.
