# How do you solve for x in x/4+6=13?

Apr 13, 2016

$x = 28$

#### Explanation:

In order to solve for x in the equation $\frac{x}{4} + 6 = 13$

begin by isolating the term with $x$ by subtracting $6$ from both sides of the equation

$\frac{x}{4} \cancel{+ 6} \cancel{- 6} = 13 - 6$

$\frac{x}{4} = 7$

now multiply by $4$ on each side to isolate the $x$ variable

$\frac{x}{\cancel{4}} \cancel{4} = 7 \left(4\right)$

$x = 28$
