I really need help my teacher left me homework I need helpers about equations and word problems

A number (x) is 6 fewer ("less than") 12.

Therefore, x = 12 - 6

By the way, you do not

**have**to use the "x" (unless either a) your teacher said that you "must" use "x" for the unknown, or b)**you**really like using "x" over other letters of the alphabet (you could use "z", "m", "p", or absolutely**any**of the letters from A to Z, if you prefer them to "x"!).Hope this helps you, Claudia!
