Text explanation

To solve for $x$ in the equation representing the product of a number $x$ and $0.28$ being equal to $13.44$, we set up the equation as follows:

\[0.28x = 13.44\]

Answer:

\[x = 48\]

Step-by-Step Solution:

  1. Write Down the Equation:

\[0.28x = 13.44\]

  1. Isolate \(x\): To isolate \(x\), you divide both sides of the equation by \(0.28\).

\[\frac {0.28x}{0.28} = \frac{13.44}{0.28}\]

\[x = \frac{13.44}{0.28}\]

\[x = \frac{1344}{28}\]

  1. Perform the Division: Now, divide \(1344\) by \(28\) to find the value of \(x\).

\[x = 48\]
