**Q 1 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

14.8 = 5.2x

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we divide both sides by 5.2

$\frac{5.2x}{5.2} = \frac{14.8}{5.2}$

**Step 2:**

So, x = 2.84 ≈ 2.8 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 2 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

$\frac{g}{2.4} = -12$

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we multiply both sides by 2.4

$\frac{g}{2.4} \times 2.4 = -12 \times 2.4$

**Step 2:**

So, g = -28.8 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 3 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

$\frac{a}{1.2} = -7.5$

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we multiply both sides by 1.2

$\frac{a}{1.2} \times 1.2 = -7.5 \times 1.2$

**Step 2:**

So, a = -9.0 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 4 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

- 18s = -19.2

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we divide both sides by 18

$\frac{-18s}{18} = \frac{-19.2}{18}$

**Step 2:**

So, s = 1.07 ≈ 1.1 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 5 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

9p = 5.6

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we divide both sides by 9

$\frac{9p}{9} = \frac{5.6}{9}$

**Step 2:**

So, p = 0.62 ≈ 0.6 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 6 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

$-0.6 = \frac{n}{14}$

### Answer : B

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we multiply both sides by 14

$-0.6 \times 14 = \frac{n}{14} \times 14$

**Step 2:**

So, n = -8.4 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 7 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

4.8x = 12.7

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we divide both sides by 4.8

$\frac{4.8x}{4.8} = \frac{12.7}{4.8}$

**Step 2:**

So, x = 2.65 ≈ 2.7 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 8 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

$\frac{j}{1.8} = -15$

### Answer : C

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we multiply both sides by 1.8

$\frac{j}{1.8} \times 1.8 = -15 \times 1.8$

**Step 2:**

So, j = -27.0 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 9 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

3.3 = 2.2y

### Answer : A

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we divide both sides by 2.2

$\frac{3.3}{2.2} = \frac{2.2y}{2.2}$

**Step 2:**

So, y = 1.5 is the solution to nearest tenth

**Q 10 - Solve the following equation. Round the answer to the nearest tenth.**

$-0.9 = \frac{m}{11}$

### Answer : D

### Explanation

**Step 1:**

Using multiplicative property of equality, we multiply both sides by 2.4

$-0.9 \times 11 = \frac{m}{11} \times 11$

**Step 2:**

So, m = -9.9 is the solution to nearest tenth
