Mr. Valenzuela's new bottle of shampoo contains \(...

Mr. Valenzuela's new bottle of shampoo contains \( 60 \) ounces of shampoo. He uses \( \frac { 1 } { 4 } \) ounce of shampoo each time he washes his hair. Which equation can be used to find \( x \) , the number of washes after which \( 24 \) ounces will remain in the bottle? 

\( \frac { 1 } { 4 } x - 60 = 24 \) 

\( 60 - \frac { 1 } { 4 } x = 24 \) 

\( \frac { 1 } { 4 } x - 24 = 60 \) 

\( 24 - \frac { 1 } { 4 } x = 60\)
