How do you solve #2/3(3x-5)-1/2(4x+3)=1/4(2x-1)-1/12#?
The first step in this situation is to distribute all values outside of parenthesis
(The subtraction here is distributed as a negative)
This leaves us with:
Combine all like terms (like terms have the same variables attached) (There is a lot of fractional addition but I'm assuming you can calculate those yourself c: )
Multiply both sides by 2
You can check your answer by substituting this value for x in the equation (you need to distribute to solve anyway so I won't repeat that step)
Our answer is correct!
