Question Which is the solution to the equation 0.5 x + 4.2 = 5.9? Round to the nearest tenth if necessary. 0.9 3.4 5.1 20.2.

Move all terms not containing xx to the right side of the equation. Subtract 4.2 from both sides of the equation.0.5x = 5.9 – 4.2 Subtract 4.2 from 5.9.0.5x = 1.7 Divide each term in 0.5 = 1.7 by 0.5 and simplify. Divide each term in 0.5x = 1.7 by 0.5. 0.5x =1.70.5. = 0.5 Simplify the left side.Cancel the common factor of 0.5. X = 1.7 0.5 Simplify the right side. Divide 1.7 by 0.5.

Move all terms not containing x

x to the right side of the equation.

Subtract 4.2 from both sides of the equation.

0.5x = 5.9 – 4.2

Subtract 4.2 from 5.9.

0.5x = 1.7

Divide each term in 0.5 = 1.7 by 0.5 and simplify.

Divide each term in 0.5x = 1.7 by 0.5.

0.5x =1.7

0.5. = 0.5

Simplify the left side.

Cancel the common factor of 0.5.

X = 1.7

0.5

Simplify the right side. Divide 1.7 by 0.5.

The answer is X =3.4
