$x = 2$

#### Explanation:

$1.2 = 2.4 - 0.6 x$

Our task is to isolate $x$ so we'll subtract $2.4$ from both sides:

$- 0.6 x = - 1.2$

Now, we'll divide by $- 0.6$ on both sides to work out what $x$ is:

$x = 2$

Check:

We substitute the value of $x$ back into the original equation to see if both sides match. If they do, then we have found our answer:

$1.2 = 2.4 - 0.6 \left(2\right)$

$1.2 = 2.4 - 1.2$

$1.2 = 1.2$
