## To solve the equation:

29x – 2(9x – 0.455) = 10x + 0.525

First, distribute the -2 to the terms inside the parentheses:

29x – 2 * 9x + 2 * 0.455 = 10x + 0.525

29x – 18x + 0.91 = 10x + 0.525

Next, combine like terms on both sides of the equation:

(29x – 18x) + 0.91 = (10x) + 0.525

11x + 0.91 = 10x + 0.525

To isolate the variable x, subtract 10x from both sides of the equation:

11x - 10x + 0.91 = 10x - 10x + 0.525

x + 0.91 = 0.525

Then, subtract 0.91 from both sides:

x + 0.91 - 0.91 = 0.525 - 0.91

x = -0.385
