7-93.

For each equation below, solve for $x$. Show the process you use to check your answer.

1. $x-\frac{2}{5}=1\frac{3}{5}$

Isolate the variable and constants.

$x-\frac{2}{5}=1\frac{3}{5}$

$\;\;\;+\frac{2}{5}\;\;\;+\frac{2}{5}$

$\textit{x}=\frac{8}{5}+\frac{2}{5}$

$x=2$

1. $5x=0$

1. $x-14.6=2.96$
