Step 1
Consider, $0.92+0.9\left(x-0.3\right)=2x-5.95$
Since, clear the decimals by multiplying both sides of the equation by 100.
$100\left[0.92+0.9\left(x-0.3\right)\right]=100\left(2x-5.95\right)$
$92+90\left(x-0.3\right)=200x-595$, apply distributive property on the both side.
$92+90x-27=200x-595$, apply distributive property on the left side.
$90x-200x=-595-65$
$-110x=-660$
$x=6$
Thus, the solution is $x=6$
