#1**+1 **

I assume that I have to express this as a percentage of x.

120% of x is 1.2x.

40% is 2/5, so it is 1.2x * 2/5, so it is 2.4x/5, which is 4.8x/10, so it is 0.48x.

Let us test it out.

Suppose x = 100.

120% of 100 is 120.

40% of 120 is 48, which fits with our equation 0.48x.

So the answer is 0.48x
