    Answer:

    b 21.3

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given equation is represented as

        \[\frac{1}{2}x + \frac{1}{4}x = 16\]

    Simplifying,

        \[(\frac{1}{2} + \frac{1}{4})x = 16\]

        \[=>(\frac{2}{4} + \frac{1}{4})x = 16\]

        \[=>\frac{2+1}{4}x = 16\]

        \[=>\frac{3}{4}x = 16\]

        \[=>x = 16 * \frac{4}{3}\]

        \[=>x = \frac{64}{3}\]

        \[=>x = 21.3\]

    Hence the value of x is represented by option b.
