# How do you solve #2/3(3x-5)-1/2(4x+3)=1/4(2x-1)-1/12#?

##### 1 Answer

#### Explanation:

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: )

Add

Multiply both sides by 2

Simplify

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)

Simplify

Our answer is correct!
