$x=72$

#### Work Step by Step

We need to get the x alone. Thus, we cancel out the subtraction by adding 8 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation $18=x/4$. In order to cancel out division, we use multiplication, so we multiply both sides by 4 to get that $x=72$. We plug 72 in for x and confirm that our answer is, indeed, correct.
