    \[\frac{1}{4}x+3=2\]\[-3=-3\]\[\frac{1}{4}x=-1\]\[x=(-.25)\]

    I am uncertain of andriod09's last step (1/4)x = -1 ==> x = -.25 I believe he divided 4 off instead of multiplying 4 to both sides.

    Cross multiplication would work, but multiplying both sides by 4 will accomplish the same thing, cancelling the (1/4)x on the left hand side. :) |dw:1349704242008:dw|

    No problems. o.O I just assumed by your message that you were correcting something with cross multiplication: "no it do like this" However, the question is answered, so I will leave. :)
