9 less

X/4 - 9 = 6

x/4 = 6+9

x/4 = 15

x = 15 x 4

x = 60 ANSWER

If you really mean "9 less one fourth of a number" ... Then you need to word your questions more carefully please!

If that is your question, then the solution is:

9 - x/4 = 6

-x /4 = 6-9

-x/4 = -3

x/4 = 3 (multiply both sides by -1)

x = 3 x 4

x = 12 ANSWER
