first you want to isolate the x. subtract 6 from both sides. then, add 3x/4 to both sides. You then are left with -4=5x/4. Multiply both sides by 4. 5x=-16. Divide both sides by 5. x=-3.2, or 3 and 1/5

(-3/4)x + 2 = (1/2)x + 6 lets look at d LHS first (-3/4)x + 2 -3x+8/4 for RHS x+12/2 -3x+8/4=x+12/2 cross multiply 2(-3x+8)=4(x+12) -6x+24=4x+48 -10x=32 x=-(32/10)=-3.2
