    Answer:

    x=3.5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    5(x+2)=4(x+3.375)

    Expand:

    5x+10=4x+13.5

    Subtract 10 from each side:

    5x+10-10=4x+13.5-10

    Simplify:

    5x=4x+3.5

    Subtract 4x from each side:

    5x-4x=4x+3.5-4x

    Simplify:

    x=3.5

    Answer:

    x = 3.5

    Step-by-step explanation:

    5(x+2)=4(x+3.375)\qquad\text{use the distributive property}\ a(b+c)=ab+ac\\\\(5)(x)+(5)(2)=(4)(x)+(4)(3.375)\\\\5x+10=4x+13.5\qquad\text{subtract 10 from both sides}\\\\5x+10-10=4x+13.5-10\\\\5x=4x+3.5\qquad\text{subtract}\ 4x\ \text{from both sides}\\\\5x-4x=4x-4x+3.5\\\\x=3.5
