# How do you solve 2/3x+5/6=1/2x-7/9?

Jul 24, 2017

By some arrangement, you can get $x = - \frac{29}{3}$

#### Explanation:

Combine terms (xs on the left hand side and numbers on the right hand side, for example):

$\frac{2 x}{3} - \frac{x}{2} = - \frac{7}{9} - \frac{5}{6}$

$\frac{4 x - 3 x}{6} = \frac{- 14 - 15}{18}$

$\frac{x}{6} = - \frac{29}{18}$

$x = - \frac{29}{3}$
