# How do you solve 1.6=7.6-5(k+1.1)?

Sep 9, 2016

$k = 0.1$

#### Explanation:

We have: $1.6 = 7.6 - 5 \left(k + 1.1\right)$

Let's expand the parentheses:

$\implies 1.6 = 7.6 - 5 k - 5.5$

$\implies 1.6 = 2.1 - 5 k$

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

$\implies - 0.5 = - 5 k$

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

$\implies k = 0.1$
