Raising rabbits. Before Roland sold two female rabbits,

half of his rabbits were female. After the sale, only onethird

of his rabbits were female. If x represents his original

number of rabbits, thenSolve this equation to find the number of rabbits that he

had before the sale.1/2x-2=1/3(x-2)

I gave you the equations you have written in your first post below. What is the problem? And notice I place parentheses around the (1/2)x so you would know it is 0.5x and not 1/2x.
