# Simplify and solve the linear equation: 0.25(4f - 3) = 0.05(10f - 9)

**Solution:**

We will be applying distributive property and then transpose variables to one side and constants to another side to form a linear equation.

0.25(4f - 3) = 0.05(10f - 9)

⇒ f - 0.75 = 0.5f - 0.45 [Using distributive property]

⇒ f - 0.5f = 0.75 - 0.45

⇒ 0.5f = 0.3

⇒ f = 0.3/0.5 = 3/5

Hence,

f = 3/5

**Video Solution:**
