How do you solve # 3/4x + 11 = 20#?
First, get all the numbers to one side and the variable, x, to the other by subtracting 11 from both sides.
Multiple both sides of the reciprocal of the coefficient (the number in front of the variable) to get x. The reciprocal for a fraction can be obtained by flipping the denominator and the numerator. For example, the reciprocal of the fraction
In this case, the coefficient is
Subtract both sides by
Divide both sides by
