Work Step by Step

$0.5x-2.325=3.95$ Multiply both sides by 1000 $0.5x\times1000-2.325\times1000=3.95\times1000$ Refine $500x-2325=3950$ Add $2325$ to both sides $500x-2325+2325=3950+2325$ Simplify $500x=6275$ Divide both sides by $500$ $\frac{500x}{500}=\frac{6275}{500}$ Simplify $x=\frac{251}{20}$ Check answer $0.5(\frac{251}{20})-2.325$ $6.275-2.325$ $3.95$
