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

Simplify both sides: 24=24
