color(magenta)(x=0

#### Explanation:

$\frac{x}{2} + 3 = 3$

$\frac{x}{2} = 3 - 3$

$\frac{x}{2} = 0$

$x = 0 \times 2$

color(magenta)(x=0

See a solution process below:

#### Explanation:

First, subtract $\textcolor{red}{3}$ from each side of the equation to isolate the $x$ term while keeping the equation balanced:

$\frac{x}{2} + 3 - \textcolor{red}{3} = 3 - \textcolor{red}{3}$

$\frac{x}{2} + 0 = 0$

$\frac{x}{2} = 0$

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

$\textcolor{red}{2} \times \frac{x}{2} = \textcolor{red}{2} \times 0$

$\cancel{\textcolor{red}{2}} \times \frac{x}{\textcolor{red}{\cancel{\textcolor{b l a c k}{2}}}} = 0$

$x = 0$
