Answer:

#x=7#

Explanation:

You only need to divide both sides by #3.2#: the expression becomes

#\frac{3.2x}{3.2} = \frac{22.4}{3.2}#

in the left hand side you can simply the fraction, since you're basically multiplying and dividing by the same number:

#\frac{cancel(3.2)x}{cancel(3.2)} = \frac{22.4}{3.2}#

and thus

#x = \frac{22.4}{3.2} = 7#
