# How do you evaluate the expression x divided by 1.2 for the given value of x=14.4?

12

#### Explanation:

This question is worded in a way that's more complicated than the question really is. Here's what the question literally says:

$\frac{x}{1.2} = y$
Substitute 14.4 for x.
$\frac{14.4}{1.2} = y = 12$

Now, there is a bit of a takeaway, here. This could be interpreted as a line.

$y = \frac{x}{1.2}$ or $y = \frac{6}{5} x$

By inserting 14.4, you find the y value when x = 14.4.
In this way, you find the point: $\left(14.4 , 12\right)$
