    How to solve this simple equation?

    Hi,

    I forgot the basic rules of how to solve this equation.
    I know that x = 26

    How would we solve this?

    25.1 = 2250 + x * 10

    1. I assume that you want to solve for x:

    25.1 = \frac{2250+x \cdot 10}{100}

    2. Multiply both sides by 100 to get rid of the denominator. You should get:

    2510 = 2250 + 10x

    Solve for x.

    Thank you earboth,

    Ofcourse you are right

    Then:

    2510 - 2250 = 10x
    x = 260 /10
    x = 26
