$x=11.6$
$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ Use the properties of equality to solve the given equation, $mx=11.6m .$ $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Since it is given that $m\ne0,$ then both sides can be divided by $m.$ That is, \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} mx=11.6m \\\\ \dfrac{mx}{m}=\dfrac{11.6m}{m} \\\\ x=11.6 .\end{array}
