Answer:

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:

#x/1.2=y#
Substitute 14.4 for x.
#14.4/1.2=y=12#

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

#y=x/1.2# or #y=6/5x#

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