Which number belongs to the solution set of the equation below? x - 8 = 36 A: 54 B: 28 C: 44 D: 38
The correct answer would be: C. 44 Explanation: If you're trying to find out x's value, you have to do the inverse operation which means if it's subtraction, you add. So to find x's value, you'd add 36 + 8 = x. And 36 + 8 = 44. So therefore, x = 44. That means the answer is C.
