I don't know what class this is for, but this is a good basic algebra problem. I would stop using "x" to mean multiply because in algebra you'll use "x" to mean an unknown number most of the time. You can use the "*" as a symbol for multiplication, use parentheses like 8(4) to mean 8 times 4.

Let "x" be the number that we want to find that fits the problems guidelines. It doesn't matter what it is yet, but we know it is a real number, so just call it x.

So meaning 32 times 8 times x equals 3. We want to rearrange this to get this in the form of x=... so let's do that. The opposite operation of multiplication is division, so if we want to "cancel" the 32, we can divide by 32 on both sides of the equation and still keep the = sign. Do the same to the 8 and you should get
