3a-6x2

I'm not clear on what you're asking here, but if you want that written as an equation, it is: 2x - 3

the quotient of twice a number and six is.... 2x/6 four less than three times the same number is .... 3x-4 So the equation would be 2x/6=3x-4

This forms an equation which solves nicely: 2x-7 = x-1 x-7 = -1 x = 6

That problem can be set up in the following equation: 2x-8=40 where 'x' represents the "number".First, add 8 to both sides to make get the x term alone. Then, divide by 2 to solve for x.The answer ends up to be 24.

Let the number be x Twice a number means 2x 7 less than twice a number means 2x-7
