# How do you solve x+7/12=2?

May 20, 2017

$x = \frac{17}{12}$

#### Explanation:

We have: $x + \frac{7}{12} = 2$

Let's subtract $\frac{7}{12}$ from both sides of the equation:

$R i g h t a r r o w x + \frac{7}{12} - \frac{7}{12} = 2 - \frac{7}{12}$

$R i g h t a r r o w x = 2 - \frac{7}{12}$

$R i g h t a r r o w x = \frac{24}{12} - \frac{7}{12}$

$\therefore x = \frac{17}{12}$

Therefore, the solution to the equation is $x = \frac{17}{12}$.
