(i) The sum of numbers x and 4 is 9. (ii) 2 subtracted from y is 8.

(iii) Ten times a is 70. (iv) The number b divided by 5 gives 6.

(v) Three-fourth of t is 15. (vi) Seven times m plus 7 gets you 77.

(vii) One-fourth of a number x minus 4 gives 4.

(viii) If you take away 6 from 6 times y, you get 60.

(ix) If you add 3 to one-third of z, you get 30.

Step-by-step explanation:

It’s a fairly easy math problem, but let us try doing it methodically.

When one third of a number is added to 5, we get 8.

Let this number be X.

.

If we form an equation as per the data in the question.

1/3(X) +5 = 8.

1/3(X) is same as X/3.

.

So, rewrite the equation as,

X/3 +5 =8.

If we subtract 5 from both sides of the equation, we get

X/3 =3.

( Note : Whatever operation you perform on one side of a mathemetical equation, must be performed on the other side as well).
