    Step 1: Subtract 3/8 from both sides

    1/x+3/8-3/8=1/4-3/8

    1/x=1/4-3/8

    Step 2: Multiply 1/4 by 1/2

    1/x = (1/4) (1/2) - 3/8

    1/x=2/8-3/8

    Step 3: Subtract

    1/x=-1/8

    Step 5: Multiply by x on both sides

    1/x (x) = - 1/8 (x)

    1=-1/8x

    Step 6: Divide - 1/8

    1 / (-1/8) = - 1/8x / (1/8)

    *You can times flip

    1 (-8) = - 1/8x (8)

    -8=-x

    *Divide by - 1

    -8/-1=-x/-1

    8=x
