    86-10x=25.2 Solve for x.

    All you have to do is take the initial weight minus the weight after the 10 days and divide by the number of days this will show approximately how much flour was used each day

    First, subtract 86 from both sides. \[(86-86)+10x=25.2-86.\]

    But @taramgrant0543664 , he needs an equation to further explaining

    First, subtract 86 from both sides. \[(86-86)+10x=25.2-86.\] do this

    ok you want me to 25.2 - 86 = -60.8

    first you subtract 25.2 from 86. you get 60.8. you do 60.8/10

    Good! Now do this\[\frac{ 10x }{ 10 }=\frac{ -60.8 }{ 10 }\]

    @Kash_TheSmartGuy your equation is wrong you should have 25.2+10x=86

    60.8 / 10 = 6.08

    No @taramgrant0543664 as the equation will result in 25.2 instead of start with it

    @Kash_TheSmartGuy -60.8/10 is a negative number not the positive number you are looking for

    Sorry, there's a problem. In my equation it should be divided by -10 instead of 10.

    It could also be 86-10x=25.2 but you had a + after the 86

    So, you get a positive answer. Final Answer: 6.08
