1. The difference between three times a number and 11 is 10.

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?

4. 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.

12 + x/8 = -1

Since you'll later turn the + into a -

OR

x/8 - 12 = -1?

Now how would you go by solving, x/8 - 12 = -1?

- Math (Translate each sentance into a equation) -

x/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
