x-.92x=24

and how do I make the prime solve this?

I know the answer is x=300, but I cannot figure out how to make the prime solve an equation like this.

Hi SalivationArmy,
that's an equation with one variable having no powers, it's called first-degree equation ;-)
Just collect like terms, isolate the variable and get x by itself:
x*(1-0.92)=24 --> 0.08*x=24 --> x=24/0.08=300, that's it !
A piece of cake for the Prime !!!!!
Best,

Aries :-)
