# The product of 7 and a number increased by 8, is 105, what is the number?

## Question:

The product of 7 and a number increased by 8, is 105, what is the number?

## Answer and Explanation:

Let us consider, a variables {eq}x. {/eq}

The mathematical expression of "The product of **7** and **x** " can be written as {eq}7x. {/eq}

The mathematical expression of" **7x** increased by **8**, is **105**" can be written as {eq}7x+8=105. {/eq}

Subtract **8** from the both sides by:

{eq}\Rightarrow 7x+8-8=105-8 {/eq}

{eq}\Rightarrow 7x =97 {/eq}

Divide both sides by **7**:

{eq}\Rightarrow \dfrac{7x}{7} =\dfrac{97}{7} {/eq}

{eq}\Rightarrow x =\dfrac{97}{7} {/eq}

Therefore, the numbers is {eq}\dfrac{97}{7}. {/eq}
