What is x in the equation 4x+0.4=4.4?

### 2 Answers | Add Yours

First step is to isolate the term that contains the unknown x to the left side. For this reason, we'll subtract 0.4 both sides:

4x = 4.4 - 0.4

4x = 4

Now, we'll divide both sides by 4:

x = 1.

Another way to solve this problem is to divide both sides by 4:

x + 0.4/4 = 4.4/4

x + 0.1 = 1.1

Now, we'll subtract 0.1 both sides:

x = 1.1 - 0.1

x = 1

**The required solution of the given equation is x = 1.**

4x+0.4=4.4

you subtract 0.4 from each side

-0.4 -0.4

4x = 4

you divide by 4 from each side

/4 /4

x = 1
