    Answer:

    The number is 13.  

    Step-by-step explanation:

    We are given the following in the question:

    Let x be the variable, then according to the question

    “The sum of eight and eleven times a number is 151”

    We can write the equation:

    8 + 11x = 151

    Solving the equation, we can write:

    8 + 11x = 151\\11x = 151-8\\11x = 143\\x = 13

    Thus, the number is 13.
