Which steps can be used in order to determine the solution to - 1.3+4.6x=0.3+4x?

A). Subtract 1.3 from both sides of the equation, add 4x to both sides of the equation, then divide by the coefficient of x.

B). Subtract 1.3 from both sides of the equation, subtract 4.6x to both sides of the equation, then divide by the coefficient of x.

C). Add 1.3 to both sides of the equation, subtract 4.6x to both sides of the equation, then divide by the coefficient of x.

D). Add 1.3 to both sides of the equation, subtract 4x to both sides of the equation, then divide by the coefficient of x.

    -1.3 + 4.6x = 0.3 + 4x

    Add 1.3 to both sides of the equation

    4.6x = 1.6 + 4x

    subtract 4x to both sides of the equation

    0.6x = 1.6

    divide by the coefficient of x (0.6)

    x = 1.6 / 0.6

    x = 8/3

    Answer

    D). Add 1.3 to both sides of the equation, subtract 4x to both sides of the equation, then divide by the coefficient of x.
