# How do you solve 3x + 4 =-8?

Jun 28, 2015

$x = 4$

#### Explanation:

Explanation:
First, we will take the $+ 4$ to the RHS. As it is positive, sending to RHS will make it negative.Therefore

$3 x = - 8 - 4$
$3 x = - 12$

Now we will send 3 to the RHS. As 3 is in multiply, sending it to RHS will make it a divisor.

$x = - \frac{12}{3}$

Hence

$x = 4$
