I got 12.

Yes, I'm dumb. Help pls 😁

Out of curiosity, are you currently taking math courses, or are you studying math on your own? I'm asking you this, because you have posted quite a bit in the math section of AF and it seems that you are interested in math.

That's pretty cool, Pool. What are you studying now? Is there a specific math subject that you'd eventually like to learn?

x = 15

first divide (2x)/2 = 1

3x+ x = 60

add that 1 to 3x

4x = 60

divide both sides by 4

4x/4 = 60/4

simplify

x=15
