Calculate: x * 8+(x * 1.5) * 4=275

Expression: $x \times 8+\left( x \times 1.5 \right) \times 4=275$

Use the commutative property to reorder the terms

$8x+\left( x \times 1.5 \right) \times 4=275$

Use the commutative property to reorder the terms

$8x+\left( 1.5x \right) \times 4=275$

Remove unnecessary parentheses

$8x+1.5x \times 4=275$

Calculate the product

$8x+6x=275$

Collect like terms

$14x=275$

Divide both sides of the equation by $14$

$\begin{align*}&x=\frac{ 275 }{ 14 } \\&\begin{array} { l }x=19 \frac{ 9 }{ 14 },& x=19.6\overset{ \cdot }{ 4 } 2857\overset{ \cdot }{ 1 } \end{array}\end{align*}$
