A.) 44 B.) 2 C.) 1 D.) 10
x = the number
Put the words into numbers and variables: "six less than three times a number" → 3x  6 "is" → = "four more than twice the number" → 2x + 4 3x  6 = 2x + 4 {created the equation by putting the words into numbers and variables} x = 10 {added 6 and subtracted 2x from each side} Check by putting 10 back in for the number in the words: "six less than three times 10" → 24 is → = four more than twice 10 → 24 24 = 24 D.) 10 Ask Algebra House Comments are closed.
