# How do you solve 1/5x=-9/10?

Jul 14, 2018

$x = - \frac{9}{5}$ or $- 1.8$

#### Explanation:

$\frac{1}{5} x = - \frac{9}{10}$

Multiply both sides by $\textcolor{b l u e}{5}$:
$\frac{1}{5} x \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot 5} = - \frac{9}{10} \textcolor{b l u e}{\cdot 5}$

Therefore,
$x = - \frac{9}{5}$ or $- 1.8$

Hope this helps!
