Five times the sum of a number and 12 is 32 less than 4 times the number, What is the number ?

x = the number

5(x + 12) = 4x - 32 {five times sum of number and 12 is 32 less than 4 times number}

5x + 60 = 4x - 32 {used distributive property}

**x = -92**{subtracted 4x and subtracted 60 from each side}
