how do I solde this equation? pls help..

1. 3/2x + 2 = 1/2 - 1/2x

    Hello,
    3/2x + 2 = 1/2 - 1/2x

    Add 1/2 x to both sides 2x + 2 = 1/2

    Subtract 2 from each side:2x = 1/2 - 2 = -3/2

    Divide both sides by 2: x = -3/2 divided by 2

    = -3/2 * 1/2
    = -3/4

    thank you =)

    From the way you have the equation, it is hard to tell if you mean 3/2 of x or 3 over 2x. If it is the former, post as 3/2 x (with a space). My solution is for the latter possibility.

    3/2x + 2 = 1/2 - 1/2x

    Multiply both sides by 2x.

    3 + 4x = x - 1/2

    3x = -7/2

    x = -7/6

    I hope this helps a little more.
