8x + x = 63

9x = 63

x = 63/9

x = 7 ounces

The correct answer is 56oz. Take 63 and divided it by 9. That will give 7oz. So 8x7 give you 56.

8x7=56. 63-7=56 a 7 oz.

The correct answer is 56 oz. Because if u divide 9 and 63 it will be 7 then if u multiply 8x7 equals 56oz.

8x+1x=63

So 8+1=9

So 9x=63

So x=63/9
