What plus 3/4 equals 2/6?

Here we will show you how to calculate "what" in this sentence: "What plus 3/4 equals 2/6?" We start by making this word problem into an algebraic equation where "what" is the variable "x".

x + 3/4 = 2/6

To solve this equation, we want x alone on the left side of the equation so we start by subtracting 3/4 on both sides like this:

x + 3/4 - 3/4 = 2/6 - 3/4

x + 3/4 - 3/4 leaves x and 2/6 - 3/4 is -5/12 which means we end up with x = -5/12. Therefore, the answer to "What plus 3/4 equals 2/6?" is as follows:

-5/12

It is always good to double-check your math to make sure you did it right. When we entered -5/12 for x in this equation x + 3/4 = 2/6, we get the following true equation which means our math is correct.

-5/12 + 3/4 = 2/6
