 Question 153412This question is from textbook Algebra I : I need help on this problem please: 16(x+2)=70.4 Thanks for you help!This question is from textbook Algebra I Answer by sbarbagallo(4)   (Show Source): You can put this solution on YOUR website!16(x+2)=70.4 Divide each term in the equation by 16. (16(x+2))/(16)=(70.4)/(16) Simplify the left-hand side of the equation by canceling the common terms. x+2=(70.4)/(16) Divide 70.4 by 16 to get 4.4. x+2=4.4 Since 2 does not contain the variable to solve for, move it to the right-hand side of the equation by subtracting 2 from both sides. x=-2+4.4 Add 4.4 to -2 to get 2.4. x=2.4
