Jill is thinking of a number. Twenty less than one fourth of the number is -45. Find Jill's number.

x = the number

x/4 - 20 = -45 {twenty less than one-fourth of the number is -45}

x/4 = -25 {added 20 to each side}

x = -100 {multiplied each side by 4}

**The number is -100,**Jill can think of something else, now.
