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

##### 1 Answer

Put the x terms on one side and everything else on the other, multiply by x, then solve and get to $x = \frac{4}{3}$

#### Explanation:

Let's start with: $\frac{8}{x} - 2 = 4$

Add 2 to both sides: $\frac{8}{x} = 6$

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

Now divide both sides by 6: $\frac{8}{6} = x$

And now let's reduce the fraction: $x = \frac{4}{3}$
