Answer:

X=2

Explanation:

I am not an expert at math, but I can help with this problem.

First you need to add 15 to both sides of the equation because there is a -15 on the side of the variable. So the -15 plus the 15 cancels out, so your left with #3/2x# on the side with the variable. Then you add 15 to the -12 which is 3.

#2/3 x-15=-12#

#3/2x=3#

Then you have to isolate the variable. Which means there are no numbers attached to the variable. So you divide both sides by #3/2#. So your left with just x on on side and on the other side you have #3 divide 3/2# = 2. So you have #x=2#.

Hope I helped! :)
