# How do you solve 4x+8=32?

May 12, 2018

$x = 6$

#### Explanation:

$4 x + 8 = 32$

Isolate for $x$. Start by subtracting $8$ from both sides of the equation.

$4 x + 8 \textcolor{red}{- 8} = 32 \textcolor{red}{- 8}$

$\textcolor{g r e e n}{4 x = 24}$

Divide both sides of the equation by $4$.

$\frac{\textcolor{g r e e n}{4 x}}{\textcolor{b l u e}{4}} = \frac{\textcolor{g r e e n}{24}}{\textcolor{b l u e}{4}}$

$\textcolor{p u r p \le}{x = 6}$
