Question:

`_________`

.
A
\(8\)

explanation

To isolate the unknown value x, we divide both sides of the equation by \(3\).

On the left, dividing by \(3\) “undoes” the effect of multiplying by \(3\) and returns to \(x\). On the right, \(24 ÷ 3 = 8\).

\(x=8\)

To check, substitute the solution \(8\) into the original equation.

Original equation: \(3x = 24\)

Substitute \(8\) for \(x\): \(3(8)=24\).
