Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Okay 48 is 96% on the test. So multiplying 0.96 to something gives us 48. Make an equation. 0.96 * x = 48 Solve for 'x'

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0It's okay, but that's not how i'm going to learn. I think getting help FOR the answers, is better. :3

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2\(\sf 0.96 \cdot x = 48\) To solve for 'x', we need to get it by itself..0.96 is in the way. 0.96 is being multiplied to 'x', so to get rid of it, we do the opposite, which is..?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Most people on here are just looking for answers..OS is here to help people learn..not to give out free answers..which is why it's against the Code of Conduct..so please refrain from giving direct answers @SoulEater142

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@SoulEater142 If you know how to find the answer on your own, you should be able to explain it to others..tell them the process and let them do it.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0nope... iv'e always been horrible at explaining my answers because i do most of it mentally.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2Yes, we divide 0.96 to both sides to get rid of it. \(\sf 0.96 \cdot x = 48\) \(\sf \dfrac{0.96}{0.96} \cdot x = \dfrac{48}{0.96}\) 0.96 divided by itself is equal to 1..so it just cancels out, leaving us with 'x'. \(\sf \cancel{\bcancel{\dfrac{0.96}{0.96}}} \cdot x = \dfrac{48}{0.96}\) \(\sf x = \dfrac{48}{0.96}\)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.2@SoulEater142 The problem is, "straight up answers" are not allowed here..you can be banned for it..we guide the asker to the solution.
