Answer:

#v=-13/10#

Explanation:

First, we'll simplify the left side:
#(5v)/6+7/6=1/12#
#(5v+7)/6=1/12#
Then multiple both sides by 12 t
To get rid of the fractions:
#(5v+7)/6*12=1/12*12#
#2(5v+7)=1#
Then expand and rearrange to get #v# alone on one side:
#5v+7=1/2#
#5v=1/2-7#
#5v=-13/2#
#v=-13/10#
