Answer:

#x = frac(17)(12)#

Explanation:

We have: #x + frac(7)(12) = 2#

Let's subtract #frac(7)(12)# from both sides of the equation:

#Rightarrow x + frac(7)(12) - frac(7)(12) = 2 - frac(7)(12)#

#Rightarrow x = 2 - frac(7)(12)#

#Rightarrow x = frac(24)(12) - frac(7)(12)#

#therefore x = frac(17)(12)#

Therefore, the solution to the equation is #x = frac(17)(12)#.
