Algebra Questions and Solutions5) Solve for x: 2x/3 = 8 + 4x you have to make "x" subject of formula by moving all the "x" to one side. When you go to the other side, addition becomes subtraction, multiplication becomes division, and vice versa. First we deal with the 3 2x/3 = 8 + 4x 2x = 3(8 + 4x)  3 was a divisor at the other end 2x = 24 + 12x
2x  12 x = 24 (12x was addition at the other end) 10x = 24 x = 24/10 (10 was multiplication at the other end) x = 2.4
