# What is the value of b when 3 times b plus 4 equals b plus 12?

3b+4 = b+12

3b-b = 12-4

2b = 8

b = 4

### What is the answer to this problem If 1 plus 5 equals 12 and 2 plus 10 equals 24 and 3 plus 15 equals 36 then 5 plus 25 equals what?

5 plus 25 equals 60. Need to solve for 5 plus 25 equals ?: 2 plus 10 equals 24 is equivalent to 2 Ã— (1 plus 5) equals 2 Ã— (12); and 3 plus 15 equals 36 is equivalent to 3 Ã—(1 plus 5) equals 3 Ã— (12); thus 5 plus 25 equals ? is equivalent to 5 Ã— (1 plus 5) equals 5 Ã— (12); thus ? = 5 Ã— 12 = 60.
