1/2x+6=1/3x
Please help. my college grad mom can't help with my 8th grade math!

  • algebra -

    Are you solving for x?
    Is the equation (1/2)x + 6 = (1/3)x.
    Multiply both sides by 6.
    (1/2)*6x + 6 = (1/3)*6x
    3x + 36 = 2x
    3x-2x=-36
    x=-36
    ===================
    Always check it by substituting the answer into the original equation.
    (1/2)x + 6 = (1/3)x
    (1/2)*-36 + 6 = (1/3)*-36
    -18+6=-12
    -12=-12
    check my thinking.Check my work.
