    Answer: x=2.40

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Add 1.7 to both sides of the equal sign. It cancels out the - 1.7 on the left side and on the right side you add - 0.7 and 1.7. This gets you 1.

    x/2.4=1

    Now you multiply 2.4 on both sides, canceling it out on the left side and on the right side your left with multiplying 2.4 by 1.

    x=2.4

    x=2.4

    Step-by-step explanation:

    we are given x/2.4 - 1.7 = - 0.7

    we are going to isolate x by doing basic operations

    adding 1.7 on both sides

    x/2.4-1.7+1.7=-0.7+1.7

    x/2.4=1.0

    multiplying both sides by 2.4

    x=1 x 2.4

    x=2.4
