# How do you solve (x-1) /3 - (x-1) /2 = 6?

Oct 8, 2017

$x = \left(- 35\right)$

#### Explanation:

Firstly we took the LCM of the Left hand side.
We get

$\frac{2 \left(x - 1\right) - 3 \left(x - 1\right)}{6} = 6$

Now we multiply both sides of the equation by $6$.

$2 x - 2 - 3 x + 3 = 36$

$\left(- 1\right) x + 1 = 36$

$- x = 35$

Therefore $x = - 35$
