ALGEBRA again still need help !

need help solving this word problem, converting from words to an equation

48 equals a number increased by 6, and the sum, all multiplied by 5.

I have the answer, but I am unable to set up an equation.
answer - x=3 3/5

  • ALGEBRA again still need help ! -

    x is the number
    (x+6)*5 = 48
    5x + 30 = 48
    5x = 18
    x = 18/5

    There is no minus sign in front of the x, as you have written in your last line.
