Sonny, I'm guessing you probably meant to type:
 
5.9x + 1.28 = 27.04
 
in which case
 
5.9x = 27.04 - 1.28 = 25.76 
 
x = 4.366
 
If you meant to type 5.9x - 1.28 = 27.04
 
5.9x = 27.04 + 1.28 = 28.32
 
x = 4.8

I'm going to make an assumption that you meant to type:
 
     5.9X + 1.28  =  -27.04
             -  1.28      - 1.28    -1.28 added to both sides
 
   5.9x = -28.32
   5.9        5.9        note:  divide both sices by 5.9
 
     X   =  -4.8
 
     Hope that helps....Randy Brown
