Example #1:
20 subtracted from the product of a number and negative six is 10.
The product of a number and negative six can be written as x × -6 = -6x.
Then we need to subtract 20 from -6x. This can be written as -6x - 20.
Finally, we need to set -6x - 20 equal to 10.
The equation is -6x - 20 = 10
Example #2:
The sum of one-fourth a number and five is twelve.
One-fourth of a number can be written as (1/4)x or x/4.
Then, we need to add x/4 to five and this can be written as x/4 + 5
Finally, we need to set x/4 + 5 equal to 12.
The equation is x/4 + 5 = 12.
