# solve 3/2x-4=16

A.x=20

B.x=13 1/3

B.x=15 1/3

D.30

I got 40/30 but thats not one of the answers

## Not 40/30 but 40/3 (3/2(x) = 20 x = 20*(2/3) x = 40/3 = 13.333) Or 13 1/3

## i think it might be B

## ok thank you anonymous

## You are right

## If you mean

(3/2)x - 4 = 16

then

(3/2)x = 20

x = 40/3

which is 13 1/3

## To solve the equation 3/2x - 4 = 16, we can follow these steps:

Step 1: Add 4 to both sides of the equation to isolate the variable term.

3/2x - 4 + 4 = 16 + 4

3/2x = 20

Step 2: To get rid of the fraction, we can multiply both sides of the equation by 2/3.

(2/3)(3/2x) = (2/3)(20)

x = (2/3)(20)

Now let's simplify the expression on the right side:

x = 40/3

The answer in mixed number format is:

x ≈ 13 1/3

So, the correct answer is B. x = 13 1/3.
