    A. \[0.4x = 2.4\] B. \[3x = 1.8\] C. \[0.5x = 3\] D. \[x = 6\] Solve for x by dividing on options a, b, and c.

    for example, we will use option a. 0.4x = 2.4 to solve for x we need to use the division property of equality and do 2.4/0.4 to get x.

    Yes it is b but you have it for the wrong reason. for option a, x = 6 (2.4/0.4 = 6) b, x = 0.6 (1.8/3 = 0.6) c, x = 6 (3 / 0.5 = 6) d, x = 6
