I believe the needs to be = something or define a value for a? You cant solve this otherwise.

#### Explanation:

$4 a + 24 =$ something
$a =$ (something - $24$) $/ 4$

OR
$a =$ something
Then $4 \cdot$ something $+ 24 = \ldots .$

Hope it makes sense.

Otherwise you can't solve this.

a = -6

#### Explanation:

Equate the function to zero, then solve for a:

$4 a + 24 = 0$

$4 a = - 24$

$a = - \frac{24}{4}$

$a = - 6$

This is only correct if you are asked to solve for 'a'.
