The equation is :

0.5(x-12) = 4

Also another problem is :

2/3 + y = 3/4

How do you divide this fraction

Thanks

0.5(x-12) = 4

Multiply by 0.5

0.5x - 6.0 = 4

Add 6.0 to both sides of the equation.

0.5x = 10

Divide both sides by 0.5

x = 20

2/3 + y = 3/4

y = 3/4 - 2/3

y = 9/12 - 8/12

y = ??
