In the equation **0.1(x+10)=0.3+-4**, x does not equal to 25. The problem is worked out below:

*Given the equation: * **0.1(x+10)=0.3+-4**

*Multiply 0.1 times x and 0.1 times 10 to get: * **0.1x+1=0.3+-4**

*Subtract the 1 from both sides to get: * **0.1x=0.3+-4-1**

*Simplify the right side of the equation to get: ***0.1x=-4.7**

*Divide both sides by 0.1 to get: ***x=-47**
