look. The statement "Twelve times the sum of eight and a number" is translated into equation this way: 12(8+x), where x is a number 12(8+x)=-29
divide both sides by 12: 12(8+x)/12=-29/12 8+x=-29/12 subtract 8 from both sides: 8+x-8=-29/12 - 8 x=\[-29/12-8\]
I did it this way 12(8+x)=-29 12 times 8 96+12x=-29 -96 12x=-125 divide 12 x=-10.4
