### How do i figure out 4x-12?

Do you mean 4x=-12? If so... here you go Well, I know that 4 times 3 is 12 so that means that 4 times a negative (-3) = -12(negative 12) So x equals -3 --------- CHECK ---------- (Plug -3 into the problem) 4 (times) -3 = 4 (times) 3 = 12 (then add a (-) to the three (3) 4 (times) -3 equals -12 x = -3 (sorry for all the parentheses) Hope this helped…
