wait whats with the parenthasis
it's part of the original equation... please read the problem one more time
do i multiply the 0.765 to the 100
yes
i got 76.5
right, keep going with the rest of the equation
i add 76.5 to 0.06
nope, remember order of operations. multiply first, then add
(0.765*x) + (0.06*(0.765)*x) = 76.5 + 0.06*(0.765)*x = ?
76.56
that isn't the correct answer, please try one more time we can split the problem into two parts: 1. 0.765*x 2. 0.06*(0.765)*x you found the first part, which is 76.5 now find the second part: 0.06*(0.765)*x = ?
0.0459
not quite, try one more time... remember that x = 100 0.06*(0.765)*x = ?
4.59
right, now we add parts 1 and 2 together 76.5 + 4.59 = ?
81.09
yup, that's our final answer
