(8 * b) * 4 (a) b + 32 (b) 12b (c) 32b (d) 8b + 4 translate the verbal sentence into an equation and solve. the sum of a number and 16 is 31. (a) 16 + 31 = x,x = 47 (b) x + 16 = 31,x = 15 (c) x + 16 = 31,x = 47 (d) 16 + 31 = x,x = 15 translate the verbal sentence into an equation and solve. the difference of 22 and a number is 8. (a) y - 22 = 8,y = 30 (b) 22 - y = 8,y = 30 (c) y - 22 = 8,y = 14 (d) 22 - y = 8,y = 14Answer by ewatrrr(10682)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website! ``` Hi simplify the expression. 16 + (x + 4) = x + 20 simplify the expression. (8 * b) * 4 = 32b the sum of a number and 16 is 31. x + 16 = 31 |subtracting 16 from both sides of equation x = 15 | x is equal to 15 the difference of 22 and a number is 8. 22 - y = 8 |subtracting 8 and adding y to both sides of equation 14 = y | y is equal to 14 Note: when solving, we must isolate the variable on one side of the equation, so as, we can 'read' the solution ```
