When you multiply a number by 6 and subtract 5 from the product you get 7. Can you tell what thenumber is?

let the number be x

when x is multiplied by 6 = 6x

5 is subtracted from the product= 6x-5

the result is 7 :- 6x-5 =7

x =?

=> 6x -5 =7

=> 6x = 7+5

=> 6x = 12

=>x = 12/6

=> x = 2

therefore x = 2

verify answer = (6 x 2 ) -5 =7

hope it helps u
