# Write equations for the following statements:

i) The sum of numbers x and 4 is 9.

ii) 2 subtracted from y is 8.

iii) Ten times a is 70.

iv) The number b divided by 5 gives 6.

v) Three-fourth of t is 15.

vi) Seven times m plus 7 gets you 77.

vii) One-fourth of a number x minus 4 gives 4.

viii) If you take away 6 from 6 times y, you get 60.

ix) If you add 3 to one-third of z, you get 30.

**Solution:**

We use basic concepts of simple linear equations to solve the questions given.

This question is very simple. Read the statement carefully and frame the equation in steps.

i) x + 4 = 9

ii) y – 2 = 8

iii) 10a = 70

iv) b/5 = 6

v) 3/4 t = 15

vi) 7m + 7 = 77

vii) 1/4x – 4 = 4

viii) 6y – 6 = 60

ix) 1/3z + 3 = 30
