a. Add 4 to eight times a number and you get 60:

Let x be the unknown number. Then we can write the equation as:

8x + 4 = 60

Subtracting 4 from both sides:

8x = 56

Dividing both sides by 8:

x = 7

Therefore, the unknown number is 7.

b. One-fifth of a number minus 4 gives 3:

Let x be the unknown number. Then we can write the equation as:

(1/5)x – 4 = 3

Adding 4 to both sides:

(1/5)x = 7

Multiplying both sides by 5:

x = 35

Therefore, the unknown number is 35.
