I do not understand how to solve this problem.

7 - 1/4 (j-8) =6

  • algebra - ,

    You are supposed to find out what value of j satisfies that equation.

    You need to clarify if
    1/4 (j-8) = (1/4)(j-8), or
    1/4 (j-8) = 1/[4(j-8)]

    In the first case,
    (1/4)(j-8) = 1
    j -8 = 4
    j = 12
