Three-fourths of a number equals 3 times the number increased by 9.

Is this the correct equation?

3/4n = 3n + 9

Here's another. In this one, does "is" mean "equals"?

One-fourth of a number is one-half more than sixth-eights of the number.

Is this correct?

1/4n = 1/2 + 6/8n

Thank you so much! Any help is appreciated!
