# Solve the Following Equation: "3x"/4 - 1/4("X" - 20) = "X"/4 + 32 - Mathematics

Sum

Solve the following equation:

"3x"/4 - 1/4("x" - 20) = "x"/4 + 32

#### Solution

⇒ "3x"/4 - "x"/4 + 5 = "x"/4 + 32

⇒ "3x"/4 - "x"/4 - "x"/4 = 32 - 5

⇒ ("3x" - "x" - "x")/4 = 27

⇒ "x"/4 = 27

⇒ x = 27 × 4

⇒ x = 108
