## $79.904 = 40.510 + .4931 x$

Dec 18, 2017

$x = 79.89$

#### Explanation:

$79.904 = 40.510 + 0.4931 x$

In this equation, we need to solve for $x$. We do this by putting $x$ on one side of the equation and all the numbers on the other side.

To make $x$ by itself, we must subtract $40.510$ from both sides:
$39.394 = 0.4931 x$

Now we need to divide both sides by $0.4931$ to get the final answer:
$79.89 \approx x$ (the $\approx$ in this case means around because I rounded it to the hundreth's decimal place)

So...
$x = 79.89$
