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

Jul 16, 2015

The answer is $x = - 26$.

#### Explanation:

$4 + \frac{x}{8} = \frac{3}{4}$

Multiply both sides of the equation times $8$.

$4 \cdot 8 + \frac{x}{\cancel{8}} ^ 1 \cdot {\cancel{8}}^{1} = \frac{3}{\cancel{4}} ^ 1 \cdot {\cancel{8}}^{2}$ =

$32 + x = 6$

Subtract $32$ from both sides.

$x = 6 - 32$ =

$x = - 26$
