    Answer: x = 0.20 (5.4) or x=0.20 (5.4 ounces).

    Step-by-step explanation:

    Given : You usually buy a 5.4 ounce bottle of lotion.

    There is a new bottle that says it gives you 20% more free.

    i. e. Size of new bottle = 20% of 5.4 ounces

    = 0.20 (5.4 ounces) [we divide percentage by 100 to convert it into decimal]

    Also, the size of the larger bottle is given to be x.

    i. e. x=0.20 (5.4 ounces)

    On solving, we get

    x = 1.08 ounces

    Hence, required equation is x = 0.20 (5.4) or x=0.20 (5.4 ounces).
