**DrBob222**, Tuesday, September 2, 2008 at 10:31pmAre you solving for x?

Is the equation (1/2)x + 6 = (1/3)x.

Multiply both sides by 6.

(1/2)*6x + 6 = (1/3)*6x

3x + 36 = 2x

3x-2x=-36

x=-36

===================

Always check it by substituting the answer into the original equation.

(1/2)x + 6 = (1/3)x

(1/2)*-36 + 6 = (1/3)*-36

-18+6=-12

-12=-12

check my thinking.Check my work.
