Question description

I was absent from class today, and I'm getting my missing assignments done, but I cant figure out how to do this problem.

Sean was trying to solve for x in the equation 0.4(x – 2) = 3.4 – 0.2x.  He said to his teammate, April, “Decimals!  I wish that we only had equations with whole numbers!” Suddenly, April blurted out, “Wait, Sean!  I think there is another way.  Can’t you first rewrite this equation so it has no decimals?  Then it will be faster and easier to solve!”

  1. What is April talking about?  Explain what she means.  Then rewrite the equation so that it has no decimals.
