Answer:

#k = 0.1#

Explanation:

We have: #1.6 = 7.6 - 5 (k + 1.1)#

Let's expand the parentheses:

#=> 1.6 = 7.6 - 5 k - 5.5#

#=> 1.6 = 2.1 - 5 k#

Then, let's subtract #2.1# from both sides of the equation:

#=> - 0.5 = - 5 k#

Now, to solve for #k#, let's divide both sides by #- 5#:

#=> k = 0.1#
