The product of 3 and a number increased by 8, is -48
Let the number be m,
3 x m = 3m,
3m increased by 8 = 3m + 8, which equals -48.
So the algebraic equation will be 3m + 8 = - 48.
NB: m can be replaced by any letter.
Hope this helps. You can ask any question if you are not satisfied.
So would the answer be 18.6?
3m + 8 = -48
3m = -48-8
3m = -56
3m = -56/3
m= 18.67, to the nearest 2 decimal places.
Correction it is -18.67
