## anonymous one year ago solve 3/2x -4 = 16

1. anonymous

24 isn't one of the answer choices

2. anonymous

sorry 30

3. anonymous

thanks

I miscalculated, the answer is 30. you first add 4 which gets you 3/2x = 20 then multiply by 3 which gets you 2x = 60 and then divide by 2 which gets you x = 30

5. anonymous

No problem! sorry for the miscalculation! :-)

23. anonymous

24. skullpatrol

You need to get a 1 in front of the x, so what number multiplied by 3/2 gives you 1

25. anonymous

1

That^ means x = 40/3 must be the answer
