x=2 I know the answer is 1, but how do I work the problem to get 1. This problem is in our text book and in the back it states the answer is 1. I tried working the problem serval times and I do not come up with one.

Thank you Reiny. I see where I was making my mistake. I was multiplying 1/2*2 and 1/2*-6. instead of 2-6 then multiplying 1/2. Thank you for your help.
