I am thinking of a number. When I add 8 and then multiply by 3, the result is 66. What is my number?

- Which of the equations represent this problem? Select all that apply, and justify your choices.

*x *+ 24 = 663

*x *+ 24 = 66

3*x *+ 8 = 66

3(*x *+ 8) = 66

- For each equation that you identified, find the value of
*x*and explain what it represents.
