Answer

x = 0.0158

Work Step by Step

200x -0.67 =100x +0.81 200x -0.67 +0.67 =100x +0.81+0.67 200x=100x +1.58 200x -100x=100x +1.58 -100x 100x=1.58 $\frac{100x}{100}$=$\frac{1.58}{100}$ x=0.0158 Check Replace x with 0.0158 200x -0.67 =100x +0.81 200$\times$0.018-0.67 =100$\times$0.0158 +0.81 3.60-0.67 = 1.58 + 0.81 2.93=2.93
