1/2x+6=1/3x
Please help. my college grad mom can't help with my 8th grade math!

Are 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
3x2x=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.
