###### Exercise32

When a plant was purchased, it was $$1.2$$ inches tall. It grows $$0.8$$ inches per day. How many days later will the plant be $$10.8$$ inches tall?

Assume the plant will be $$10.8$$ inches tall $$d$$ days later. We can solve this problem using the equation:

$$\displaystyle{0.8 d+1.2=10.8}\text{.}$$

Check whether $$12$$ is a solution for $$d$$ of this equation.

• Yes

• No
