# If k + 7 = 16, then the value of 8k - 72 is

(a) 0

(b) 1

(c) 112

(d) 56

**Solution:**

Let’s find the value of k in the equation k + 7 = 16

k + 7 = 16

k = 16 - 7

k = 9

Now put the value of k = 9 in the expression 8k - 72

8(9) - 72 = 0

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (a) 0

**✦ Try This:** If x + 10 = 16, then the value of 8x - 32 is (a) 16, (b) 1, (c) 112, (d) 56

Here, x + 10 = 16

x = 16 - 10

x = 6

Now put the value of x = 6 in the expression 8x - 32

8(6) - 32 = 16

Hence out of the four options, the correct option is (a) 16
