Ok so your original equation is $Y=\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }x +8$

First, we plug in 20 for x $Y=\frac{ 1 }{ 4 }(20)+8$

Since all whole numbers have a denominator of 1, we can multiply them together.$\frac{ 1 }{ 4 } \times \frac{ 20 }{ 1 }$ To do this, you can simply just multiply 1 by 20, and 4 by 1

Now we get $Y= \frac{ 20 }{ 4 }+8$ To finish solving, do $20\div4=5$ and then add 8. 8+5=13
