like that ^ ?

OpenStudy (sandra):

so basically in that case you need to find a common denominator for x/2 and x-2/3

OpenStudy (sandra):

the common denominator would be 6 (the lowest number that 3 and 2 divide into evenly)

\[\frac{x}{2} - \frac{x-2}{3} = .4\] \[\frac{3 \times x}{3 \times 2} - \frac{2 \times (x-2)}{2 \times 3} = .4\]

OpenStudy (sandra):
