$x=4.8$
$\bf{\text{Solution Outline:}}$ To solve the given equation, $\dfrac{1}{4}x=1.2 ,$ use the properties of equality to isolate the variable. $\bf{\text{Solution Details:}}$ Using the properties of equality to isolate the variable, the equation above is equivalent to \begin{array}{l}\require{cancel} \dfrac{1}{4}x=1.2 \\\\ 4\left( \dfrac{1}{4}x \right) =4(1.2) \\\\ x=4.8 .\end{array}
