# If you triple 4 and subtract 2 each day, how many days until you have zero

**Solution:**

Given, triple 4 and subtract 2 each day.

Let the number of days be ‘x’.

Triple 4 can be written as 3 × 4 = 12

Triple 4 and subtract 2 each days can be written as 12 - 2x

We have to find the number of days until we get zero.

So, 12 - 2x = 0

We can write it as

2x = 12

Dividing both sides by 2

x = 12/2

x = 6

Therefore, there are 6 days until we have zero.

## If you triple 4 and subtract 2 each day, how many days until you have zero

**Summary:**

If you triple 4 and subtract 2 each day, there are 6 days until you have zero.
