Pretending that there is a 1 in front of the first x, subtract .098x from 1x: 1x-.098x=.902x

Now you have: .902x=130.11

Divide by .902 on both sides: .902x/.902=x and 130.11/.902=144.246

The answer is: x=144.246

If this is too complex, let me know.

A helpful way to think of this problem is to realize that there is a '1' in front of the x, even when the number is not explicitly written.


What you would do then do is find the amount of 'x' that equals the number on the right, and then divide that number by the x amount to reach the answer.
