# How do you solve n/4 - 3 =4?

Mar 26, 2018

The solution is $n = 28$.

#### Explanation:

First, add $3$ to both sides. Then, multiply by $4$. Here's what that process looks like:

$\frac{n}{4} - 3 = 4$

$\frac{n}{4} - 3 \textcolor{b l u e}{+} \textcolor{b l u e}{3} = 4 \textcolor{b l u e}{+} \textcolor{b l u e}{3}$

$\frac{n}{4} \textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{- \textcolor{b l a c k}{3} \textcolor{b l u e}{+} \textcolor{b l u e}{3}}}} = 4 \textcolor{b l u e}{+} \textcolor{b l u e}{3}$

$\frac{n}{4} = 4 \textcolor{b l u e}{+} \textcolor{b l u e}{3}$

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

$\frac{n}{4} \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot 4} = 7 \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot 4}$

$\frac{n}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{4}}}} \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot \textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l u e}{4}}}} = 7 \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot 4}$

$n = 7 \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot 4}$

$n = 28$

This is the answer. Hope this helped!
