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

If you meant to type 5.9x - 1.28 = 27.04

5.9x = 27.04 + 1.28 = 28.32

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
