# How do you solve 3x+8=32?

Jun 28, 2015

$x = 8$

#### Explanation:

First, we will take the $+ 8$ to the RHS. As it is positive, sending to RHS will make it negative. Therefore

$3 x = 32 - 8$
$3 x = 24$

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

$x = \frac{24}{3}$

Hence

$x = 8$
