2.(12/5)+7=31-(3/5)x

heres the example they give me. still cant figure it out though

Solve for x.

6-(1/2)x=(3/5)+x

it says ya need to isolate the variable x. We first add (1/2)x to both sides and subtract (3/5) from both sides

then they got 6-(3/5)=x+(1/2)x

(27/5)=(3/2)x

(2/3) times (27/5)=(2/3)times(3/2)x

answer is (18/5)x
