# How do you solve -7x + 3 = -15/2?

Apr 15, 2018

$x$ would be * $\frac{3}{2} \mathmr{and} 1.5$ *

#### Explanation:

To find $x$ you would put 3 on the other side and it going to become negative.

So like this.....
$- 7 x + 3 = - \frac{15}{2}$
$- 7 x = - \frac{15}{2} - 3$
And then you calculate it .....
$- 7 x = - 10.5$
And then you divide each side by -7 to isolate it....
$- 7 \frac{x}{-} 7 = - \frac{10.5}{-} 7$
$x = 1.5 \mathmr{and} \frac{3}{2}$
