Enter Equation or Inequality

Solve the following equation


Solve for x

215 + 0.035x = 242 + 0.025x

Group variables

Group our variables 0.035x and 0.025x
subtract 0.025x from both sides

0.035x + 215 - 0.025x = 0.025x + 242 - 0.025x

Cancel 0.025x on the right side:

0.01x + 215 = 242

Group constants

Group our constants 215 and 242.
subtract 215 from both sides

0.01x + 215 - 215 = 242 - 215

Cancel 215 on the left side:

0.01x = 27

Divide each side of the equation by 0.01


x = 2700

Final Answer

x = 2700

What is the Answer?
x = 2700
