Step 1
Consider, 0.92+0.9(x0.3)=2x5.95
Since, clear the decimals by multiplying both sides of the equation by 100.
100[0.92+0.9(x0.3)]=100(2x5.95)
92+90(x0.3)=200x595, apply distributive property on the both side.
92+90x27=200x595, apply distributive property on the left side.
90x200x=59565
110x=660
x=6
Thus, the solution is x=6
