  • Maths - ,

    If you mean
    x- 1/2 -x -2/3 = 1 , then the x's cancel and you are left with the untrue statement
    -7/6 = 1

    You need to add parentheses to your equation to clarify the order of algebraic operations.

    For example,
    (x-1)/2 -(x-2)/3 = 1
    is an equation that can be solved. It may or may not be what your question really intended.
