4N + 8
6x + 4 = 5x x = -4
Suppose the number is x. The sum of the number and two is x+2 Four times the sum is 4(x+2) The number times 8 is 8x 24 less than the number times 8 is 8x-24 4(x+2) = 8x-24 4x+8=8x-24 so 4x = 32 and x = 8
The larger number is 12.
The sum of four and the product of three and a number xxxx.
Four times the unknown number. Let's say the unknown number is x. x + 3x = 4x
