    Here is a few of them if you all don't mind helping:

    184 - X = 51...

    4y - 8 = 20

    30x = 480

    Here is a few of them if you all don't mind helping:

    184 - X = 51...

    Step 1: Subtract 184 from both sides.

    184 - x - 184 = 51 - 184
    -x = -133



    Finally, multiply both sides of the equation by -1 to make the x positive.

    x = 133

    4y - 8 = 20

    Step 1: Add 8 to both sides of the equation

    4y - 8 + 8 = 20 + 8
    4y = 28

    Finally, divide both sides of the equation by 4.

    (4y)/4 = 28/4
    y = 7


    30x = 480

    Divide both sides of the equation by 30.

    (30x)/30 = 480/30

    x = 16

    All help is greatly appreciated.
    Results in red.
