7+(x-9/24)times40=480

what is x

asked by john
  1. 7+(x-9/24)(40) = 480
    40(x - 9/24) = 473
    40x - 15 = 473
    40x = 488
    x = 61/5 or 12.2

    check:
    LS = 7 + (61/5 - 9/24)(40)
    = 7 + (473/40)(40)
    = 7 + 473
    = 480 = RS

    my answer is correct according to the way you typed the problem.
