Mar 20, 2018

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

Multiply each side by $\textcolor{red}{2}$ to solve for $x$ while keeping the equation balanced:

$\textcolor{red}{2} \times \frac{x}{2} = \textcolor{red}{2} \times \frac{15}{6}$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{2}} \times \frac{x}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{2}}}} = \frac{30}{6}$

$x = 5$
