How do you solve #8/x - 2 = 4 #?

1 Answer

Answer:

Put the x terms on one side and everything else on the other, multiply by x, then solve and get to #x=4/3#

Explanation:

Let's start with: #8/x-2=4#

Add 2 to both sides: #8/x=6#

Multiply both sides by #x#: #8=6x#

Now divide both sides by 6: #8/6=x#

And now let's reduce the fraction: #x=4/3#
