8. ALGEBRA

I followed that 3 + x(12*4) = 24 multiply 12*4 3 + 48x = 24 subtract 3 from both sides 3 - 3 + 48x = 24 - 3 48x = 21 divide both sides by 48 48x/48 = 21/48 x = 21/48 reduce fraction x = 7/16

3 + x(12*4) - 24 if that is the problem then, 3 + 48x - 24 48x - 21 48x = 21 x = 21/48 x = 7/16 you can only combine 'like terms' x terms can only be added to other x terms, constant terms can only be added to other constant terms. do you understand?
