Hello:

Can you solve the following using algebra or some other method?

$? - (30% X $?) = $350

$? equals the same amount and that amount is $500.00.

I thank you for your reply.

I'm a little confused... If you already know that $? = 500, then you have the answer. Unless, you are looking to find out how why the answer is 500? This is how to solve the problem.

We're going to call $?, z and 30% = .3, so

z - .3Z = 350 (combine like terms)

.7z = 350 (divide both sides by .7)

z = 500

I can answer questions in basic algebra and any grade school math.

Love math, currently helping my nephew get through Intermediate Algebra.**Education/Credentials**

I majored in Math Ed in college (but decided not to teach), so have over 40 credits of math.
