Hi this question was already asked but there is still no correct answer. I can't seem to solve this for x correctly...I got 128 over 55 as an answer which can't be correct. Please help me find the correct answer! Thanks The equation is:
Please show the work as well as the answer. Thanks again.
0.05x - 0.6x + 1.2 = 0.08
-0.55x = 0.08 - 1.2
-0.55x = -1.12
x = -1.12 / -0.55
x = 2.036
See if that solution works.
No that's what someone else said and it doesn't work!! And I thought -.6 x 2= -1.2 not positive 1.2.
You're right. My sign is wrong.
Multiply all terms by 100
All you had to do was put the negative sign in the final answer.
But that still doesn't work in the equation...does it?
Oh I guess it does. Thanks!
