can you explain how u did it please?

combine like terms

so combine 0.2x- 8x

so its -7.8x-11.4=0.9

yes, then you would add 11.4 to both sides

which is 12.3 then divide 2.3 by -7.8

which is how i got -1.5769 but you can round it to -1.58

oh, thank you so much!
this will help me in my class :)

welcome! :))

one more thing. if it was 0.2x + .6 - 8x + 12= 0.9
would the answer be positive 1.5?

no, it would be -1.6

I got x=1.5 even

hmm.....i check my work
