$${\frac{\left({\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{8}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{9}}\right)}{{\mathtt{3}}}} = {\mathtt{7}}$$

$${\mathtt{x}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{8}}{\mathtt{\,\small\textbf+\,}}{\mathtt{9}} = {\mathtt{21}}$$

$${\mathtt{x}} = {\mathtt{21}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{8}}{\mathtt{\,-\,}}{\mathtt{9}}$$

$${\mathtt{x}} = {\mathtt{4}}$$
