# If you multiply a number by 3 and divide by 4, the result is 24. What is the number?

In algebra, the problem is expressed as a mathematical expression using variables and constants called an equation.

## Answer: The number is 32.

Let's find the number

**Explanation:**

To find the numbers we will have a linear equation with one variable.

Let the number be 'x'

When multiplied by 3, we get 3x

When divided by 4, we get 3x / 4

⇒ 3x / 4 = 24

⇒ 3x = 96

⇒ x = 32
