I will assume that your terms are

(7/2)x + (1/2)x .....

then I would multiply each term by 14, the LCD, and all your fractions would disappear.

After that you should have no problems

if your equation is

7/(2x) + ....

then you would end up with a quadratic.

No point going into that if that is not the case.
