# How do you solve 8= 4+ \frac { w } { 10.24}?

In that equation, $w = 40.96$

#### Explanation:

First, in the equation $8 = 4 + \frac{w}{10.24}$, you would subtract 4 from both sides:

$8 - 4 = 4 + \frac{w}{10.24} - 4$

So now you have:

$4 = \frac{w}{10.24}$.

After that, solve for $w$ by multiplying both sides by $10.24$.

$4 \left(10.24\right) = \left(\frac{w}{10.24}\right) \left(10.24\right)$

You should get

$w = 40.96$
