Answer:

The value of #k# is #4#.

Explanation:

Your equation is

#1/2k-3 = 2-3/4k#

Multiplying both sides by #4#, we get

#2k-12 = 8-3k#

Keeping the terms involving #k# on one side and the constants on the other, we get

#-12-8 = -3k-2k#

#-20 = -5k#

Divide both sides by #-5#

#(-20)/-5 = (-5k)/-5#

#4 = k#
