    Multiply it all out, and move X to one side. Then find X by itself

    Not sure why you would have to work it out. The answer is right there. Weird how they make you do this crazy method of math, and this is mental math. Simple. Let's look at the left side : (–12.3) • (–6.9) •( 9.5) Now look at the right side : x • (9.5)• (–12.3) Take a good look at the numbers on the left and right side. The left and right side both have 9.5 and -12.3, correct?
