Whould it be: 3x - 11 = 10?

2. One more than the difference between 18 and seven times a number is -9.

Would it be: 1 + 18 - 7x = -9?

3. 26 more than the product of a number and 17 is -42.

Would it be: 26 + x + 17 = -42?

4. Twelve less than the quotient of a number and 8 is -1.

Would it be: 12 - x/8 = -1?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 6:26pm1. Correct.

2.

(18 - 7x) + 1 = -9

3.

17x + 26 = -42

4. Incorrect.

**Dab**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 6:48pm4. 12 - a + 8 = 1?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 6:54pm4. Quotients are the answers to a division problem. Your first answer was on the right track, except that it didn't show 12 less than the quotient.

**Dab**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 6:56pm12 + x/8 = -1

Since you'll later turn the + into a -

OR

x/8 - 12 = -1?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 6:58pmThis is correct:

x/8 - 12 = -1

**Dab**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 7:02pmNow how would you go by solving, x/8 - 12 = -1?

**Ms. Sue**, Tuesday, October 11, 2011 at 7:13pmx/8 - 12 = -1

Multiply both sides of the equation by 8.

x - 96 = -8

x = 96 - 8

x = 88

Proof:

(88/8) - 12 = -1

11 - 12 = -1
