not so sure about this one either.

(anything typed such as 7/6 are fractions, not sure how to type it.

x+7/6=2x-7/6

6(x+7/6)=6(2x-7/6)

6x+7=12x-7

-6x -6x

7=6x-7

+7 +7

6x/6= -14/6

x = 14/6 = 7/3 is the correct answer.

Your error was made in the last step. You should have come up with 6x = 14

x+7/6=2x-7/6

6(x+7/6)=6(2x-7/6)

6x+7=12x-7

Subtract 6x from both sides and add 7 to both sides.

6x = 14

x = 14/6 = 7/3 = 2 1/3

I hope this helps a little more. Thanks for asking.
