#### Answer

$k=9$

#### Work Step by Step

We need to get the k alone. Thus, we cancel out the addition by subtracting 1.5 on both sides. This leaves us with the equation $.11k=.99.$ In order to cancel out multiplication, we use division, so we divide both sides by .11 to get that $k=9$. We plug 9 in for k and confirm that our answer is, indeed, correct.
