# How do you solve 1.5x + 0.25 = 1.6x?

(I will refer to the left side of the equation as A and the right side as B) You need to isolate x by dividing B by x. Then do the opposite to A. Subtract .25 from A and add .25 to B. You should now have $1.5 {x}^{2} = 1.6 + 0.25$. Then divide A by 1.5 and multiply B by 1.5. You should now have ${x}^{2} = 2.4 + .25$. B should now equal 2.65. Now do the square root of everything: $\sqrt{{x}^{2} = 2.65}$. Your final answer is x=1.62788205961
