## Table of Contents – If a Number is Decreased by 4 and Divided by 6 (Problem Solved)

- If a number is decreased by 4 and divided by 6.
- The result is 8.
- If 2 is subtracted from the number and divided by 5
- What is the number?

## Important Points to Solve the Problem

The required result can be figure out in this way.

Let suppose the number is y.

Now, decreasing this number by 4

y â€“ 4

and dividing by 6

(y â€“ 4)/6

The result is 8

(y â€“ 4)/6 = 8 ________ (i)

Value of y can be figure out easily from equation (i) by just simplifying it (y = 52).

Now, number is known to us (y = 52), after subtracting 2 (52 â€“ 2 = 50) and dividing the result by 5 (50/5 = 10), we get 10 which is our required answer.

## To Find

Number = ?

## Solution

Let suppose

Number = y

According to the given condition

(y â€“ 4)/6 = 8

y â€“ 4 = 8 x 6

y â€“ 4 = 48

y = 48 + 4

y = 52

According to the second given condition

52 â€“ 2 = 50

50/5 = 10

**Required Number = 10 answer**
