# What is x when: 10 + (x /6) - 3 + 16 = 26?

**Solution:**

Given : 10 + (x/6) - 3 + 16 = 26

Let's keep the variable term on one side and all the numerical terms on another side

⇒ x/6 = 26 - 10 + 3 - 16

Simplifying the right-hand side (RHS) we get

⇒ x/6 = 3

Multiplying 6 on both sides we get

⇒ 6 × (x/6) = 3 × 6

⇒ x = 18

Thus, the value of x is 18 in the given equation 10 + (x /6) - 3 + 16 = 26.

## What is x when: 10 + (x /6) - 3 + 16 = 26?

**Summary:**

The value of x is 18 in the given equation 10 + (x /6) - 3 + 16 = 26.
