  1. Shouldn't there be parentheses around 600,000-x ?

    It makes a big difference in the answer.

    WITH parentheses, you can rewrite the equation as
    600,000 - x = 60,000
    and the answer is x = 540,000

    WITHOUT parentheses, you would get
    599,999.9 = x/600,000
    x = 359,999.940
