Answer:-2.1Step-by-step explanation:We have an equation and the question is asking us to look for x.

To solve, we must isolate x and get it on its own.

2.5(x + 4) = 4.75

Distribute the 2.5 to get rid of the parenthesis :

(2.5(x) + 4(2.5)) = 4.75

2.5x + 10 = 4.75

Subtract ten from both sides :

2.5x = -5.25

Divide 2.5 by both sides to get x alone :

x = -2.1
