How do you solve the following equation? I know x= 20 but do not know how to show the work.

Something is missing here.

• algebra -

The equation is :

0.5(x-12) = 4

Also another problem is :

2/3 + y = 3/4
How do you divide this fraction

Thanks

• algebra -

0.5(x-12) = 4

Multiply by 0.5
0.5x - 6.0 = 4

Add 6.0 to both sides of the equation.
0.5x = 10

Divide both sides by 0.5
x = 20

2/3 + y = 3/4
y = 3/4 - 2/3
y = 9/12 - 8/12
y = ??
