Dec 8, 2015

$a = 16$

#### Explanation:

Given
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} 6 = \frac{a}{4} + 2$

Subtract $2$ from both sides:
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} 4 = \frac{a}{4}$

Multiply both sides by $4$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX")16=acolor(white)("XXX}}$or$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX}} a = 16$
