what number minus 25% equals 6000?
x - 0.25x = 6,000
0.75x = 6,000
x = 6,000 / 0.75
x = 8,000
Wy did you put 0.25x in the first line? x reps what?
and where did you get 0.75 from??
x represents the unknown number.
but the x is already there in the first digit because it is somethin=x and shouldnt it be :
x-0.25 = 6000?? why x - 0.25x = 6000??
1 - 0.25 = 0.75
