Let's say that [latex]x[/latex] is 'the number' we're talking about.   More than means add Times means multiply Is means equal to So all we have to do is set it up in an equation: [latex]25+7x=46+4x[/latex] So now let's solve for [latex]x[/latex] Get all [latex]x[/latex]s to one side: [latex]25+3x=46[/latex] Now get all of the numbers to one side: [latex]3x=24[/latex] Now let's solve for [latex]x[/latex]: [latex]x=8[/latex] So x=8
