9 Less Than One Fourth Of A Number Is 6, What Is The Answer?

9 less than one fourth of a number is 6 : To my sense this actually means 'One fourth of a number minus 9 equals 6". If that's what you mean, then here's a solution for 'a number, x':
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

9 - (1/4 of x) = 6
9 - 1/4x = 6
1/4x = 3
x = 12

The answer for the above question is as follows:
Let the number be x then the equation according to above conditions will be:
9-(1/4ofx)=6
9-1/4x=6
x=-3x4 is the answer
x=-12 is the answer.

.25x - 9 = 6; 0.25 is equal to one-fourth of a number

trasposing -9 to the right side, the equation becomes

.25x =6 + 9

.25x =15

divide both sides by .25,

[.25x = 15]/.25

Therefore,

x = 60 ^^
