Answer:

#x = 7/6#

Explanation:

move the #x# values on one side, and the numbers on the other side

#7/15 x + 5/6 = 2/3 x + 3/5#

#7/15 x - 2/3 x# = #3/5 - 5/6#

#- 1/5 x = - 7/30#

#x = - 7/30 -:- 1/5#

#x = 7/6#

#7/6#

Explanation:

#7/15+5/6=2/3x+3/5#

#:.14x+25=20x+18#

#:.14x-20x=18-25#

#:.-6x=-7#

#:.6x=7#

#:.x=7/6#

#:.7/15(7/6)+5/6=2/3(7/6)+3/5#

#:.49/90+5/6=7/9+3/5#

multiply both sides by #90#

#:.49+75=70+54#

#:.124=124#
