How do you solve #16.2(3.1-x)-31.55x=-19.5#?

1 Answer

Answer:

#x=1.460105#

Explanation:

#16.2(3.1−x)−31.55x=−19.5#

Step 1: Simplify both sides of the equation

DOUBLE DISTRIBUTION OF #16.2#

#−47.75x+50.22=−19.5#

Step 2: Subtract #50.22# from both sides

#−47.75x + cancel(50.22) − cancel(50.22) =−19.5 −50.22#

#−47.75x=−69.72#

Step 3: *Divide both sides by #-47.75#

#(cancel(-47.75)x)/cancel(-47.75) = 69.72/(-47.75)#

#x = 1.460105#
