x.92x=24 How to solve on Prime?
is there a name for this type of equation?
x.92x=24 and how do I make the prime solve this? I know the answer is x=300, but I cannot figure out how to make the prime solve an equation like this.

Hi SalivationArmy, that's an equation with one variable having no powers, it's called firstdegree equation ;) Just collect like terms, isolate the variable and get x by itself: x*(10.92)=24 > 0.08*x=24 > x=24/0.08=300, that's it ! A piece of cake for the Prime !!!!! Best, Aries :)

Another way, (assuming X is a real number):
In the Apps Library, the Solve App can be useful in [HOME] mode for linear equations like your example. Remember to use upper case X for your variable when you enter your equation in the [Symb] view. Then go to the [Num] view and just press the [Solve] black softkey, which will return 300 in the solve box for X. Dale
